Rambus 

Integration 

Solving today's leading-edge 
digital design challenges, 
including Rambus and the 
next generation of 
microprocessors, requires 
an entire test and 
measurement solution. 

With this year's 
introduction of three 
cornerstone products, 
the Tektronix 
TDS 694C, the TLA 714/720 
and the DG2040 - today's 
speed-driven engineers can 
swiftly integrate Rambus 
technology into their 
state-of-the-art designs. 



THE Rambus challenge 

Today, Rambus systems are driving state-of- 
the-art digital performance, with a sophisticat- 
ed memory-to-processor architecture and a 
high-speed chip-to-chip interface, called 
Rambus DRAM (RDRAM). Although RDRAMs 
deliver a quantum leap in performance, they 
increase the complexity of the verification, 
debug and characterization of processor-based 
applications. 

The Need For Speed. ..And Accuracy 

Couple the complexity of Rambus with today’s 
rigorous time-to-market schedules and its clear 
how essential it is to choose measurement 
tools that not only deliver repeatable perform- 
ance validation, but do it quickly. The right 
tools can literally save weeks in the design 
of a memory system, simply by revealing 
circuit performance details that elude lesser 
instruments or by making measurement results 
easier to comprehend and analyze. 



The Tektronix Solution 

With this year’s introduction of three new cor- 
nerstone products; the Tektronix TDS 694C, 
the TLA 714/720 and the DG2040, engineers 
now have a complete and robust suite of per- 
formance tools to swiftly— and effectively- 
integrate high-speed digital technologies, such 
as Rambus, into their designs 
From board-level to system-level to code-level, 
Tektronix delivers the most comprehensive, 
performance solution for all of your high- 
speed digital designs needs.

The Tektronix strategy is self-explanatory: 
when a new wireless test requirement arises, a 
proper toolset should be there in advance to 
meet the need. 

But for now, wireless network operators and 
equipment manufacturers need test solutions 
that will address two pressing issues: 1.) keep- 
ing pace with burgeoning 2G demand for 
capacity and innovative products, and 2.) 
ensuring superior quality of service (QoS) as 
wireless industry competition grows even 
more intense. 

Tektronix offers a wide range of 2G test equip- 
ment, from integrated RF air interface analysis 
tools to signaling protocol analyzers.

uses the existing circuit switched GSM net- 
work infrastructure for voice traffic and adds a 
new packet switched network consisting of 
GPRS support nodes for data traffic. The 
result is a much-improved data rate of up to 
160 kb/sec (vs. the 9.6 kb/sec rate of standard 
GSM networks). It's no wonder that wireless 
customers are anxious to gain the benefit of 
GPRS enhancements! 

The K1297 Protocol analyzer with new GPRS 
software allows monitoring at all new net- 
work interfaces (such as support nodes) in 
GPRS systems as well as the simulation of 
GPRS network elements. It is ideal for the 
monitoring of GPRS protocols and services, 
and verifying inter-operability of GPRS with 
adjacent networks. 



Capabilities: 

► Portable Multi-protocol tester for monitor- 
ing, simulation, emulation and confor- 
mance tests 

► Packet simulation, emulation and monitor-

Q7606 Chirp Test Instrument 

The Q7606 Chirp Test Instrument quickly 
calculates the alpha chirp value in under 45 
seconds for optical communication signals 
transmitting 10 Gbps or less. 

At these transmission speeds, the system can 
experience intersymbol interference because 
the optical signal's wavelength briefly shifts. 
This brief wavelength shift enlarges the width 
of optical signals in the time domain, creating 
what is referred to as chirp. 

Until now, engineers could not quickly meas- 
ure chirp with such excellent resolution and 
repeatability performance. The Q7606 chirp 
instrument decreases testing time from 20 
minutes to under 45 seconds and provides 
the highest resolution for chirp measurements 
at <20 MHz. See page 312.

General Trends in 
Oscilloscope Development 

Today you will find more and more 
special purpose oscilloscopes, such as 
the TDS 700D with their communica- 
tions options, TDS 3000 with its video 
capability, CSA 803C and 11801C with 
bandwidth to 50 GHz and color graded 
display for thorough analysis of high- 
speed communication channels and 
standards testing. 

Our TDS oscilloscopes include powerful 
digital signal processing engines which 
can give you simultaneous time and fre- 
quency domain displays with fast updates. 

Our scopes are constantly getting easier 
to use. We’ve reversed the trend toward 
more buttons and menus. Oiu* new mod- 
els achieve a balance between perform- 
ance and ease of use. We’ve done our 
homework, tested our ideas and greatly 
improved access to important new fea- 
tures without making the basic functions 
hard to find. Volts/division, time/divi- 
sion and trigger level have dedicated 
knobs so you can just grab and turn. 

Measurement, trigger modes, hard copy 
setups and acquisition control lie with- 
in easy reach behind a graphic user 
interface (GUI). Information-packed dis- 
plays are made easy to read with a 
high-resolution color monitor. 



Tektronix Digital Phosphor 
Oscilloscopes, Digital 
Storage Oscilloscopes and 
Communication Signal 
Analyzers 

These products include many innova- 
tive features designed to improve pro- 
ductivity and reduce operating costs. 
Tektronix oscilloscopes represent the 
best combination of performance fea- 
tures, human factors and price on the 
market today. 

► Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes go 
beyond analog real-time (ART) and 
digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) 
by incorporating an information- 
rich, real-time display, that surpass- 
es any analog or digital scope’s capa- 
bilities. This new instrument deliv- 
ers a new level of insight that makes 
dealing with complex signals 
straightforward, without loosing the 
full spectrum of digital acquisition, 
storage and analysis capabilities that 
engineers have come to expect in 
their oscilloscope solutions. 

► Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes 
make it possible to see, store and 
analyze complex signals, such as 
serial data streams that are seen in 
the telecommunications, data com- 
munications and computer/comput- 
er peripheral industries. 



► Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes pro- 
vide three full dimensions of signal 
information-amplitude, time and 
distribution of amplitude over time, 
in real-time. 

► Application specific measurements 
based on Java technology provide 
advanced analysis of acquired 
data, giving the user measurement 
results in familiar terms, specific 
to their industry. 

► The TDS 700D DPO and CSA com- 
munication analyzers give an accu- 
rate assessment of noise, jitter and 
compliance to ITU and ANSI stan- 
dards. Up to 50 GHz bandwidth with 
2.0 ps RMS jitter (1.3 ps typically) is 
available in the CSA 803C. 

► The High Bandwidth (50 GHz) 11801C 
offers the highest timing resolution 
and measurement repeatability. While 
the TDS 800 combines the sequential 
equivalent-time sampling technology 
of the 11 80 1C with the mid-range TDS 
platform for DC-8 GHz bandwidth in a 
portable monohthic instrument. 

► Using oversampling technology, DSOs 
offer single-event waveform capture to 
their full bandwidth. TDS 694C pro- 
vides the highest accuracy delta time 
measurements at ±15 ps. 

► The TDS 3000 DPO has specialized 
display, triggering and measure- 
ment capabilities for working with 
video signals.

Better than analog.

Digital Phosphor 
Oscilloscopes 

Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes display, 
store and analyze complex signals in 
real-time, using three dimensions of sig- 
nal information: amplitude, time and 
distribution of amplitude over time. 

DPO goes beyond analog real-time (ART) 
and digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) 
by incorporating an information-rich, 
real-time display, that surpasses any ana- 
log or digital scope’s capabilities. This 
incredible new instrument delivers a 
new level of insight that makes dealing 
with complex signals straightforward - a 
level of insight engineers must see to 
believe. Of course, all of this is com- 
bined with the full spectrum of digital 



acquisition, storage and analysis capabil- 
ities that engineers have come to expect 
in their oscilloscope solutions. 

Like the actual phosphor on an ART 
display, the DPO captures and remem- 
bers the frequency of events, resulting 
in a three-dimensional array that retains 
information for hundreds of millions of 
samples. Chemical phosphorescence 
creates a gray scale because of the 
decay in its energy over time. Digital 
phosphor replicates this decay in inten- 
sity by digitally controlling the replace- 
ment of data in the three dimensional 
array. As a result, a DPO can display, 
store and analyze three dimensions of 
signal information: amplitude, time and 
the distribution of amplitude over time.

OSCILLOSCOPE REFERENCE 



The DPO model takes a hardware-based 
approach to achieve this remarkable 
performance. Using advanced ASIC 
technology. It accumulates multiple 
images of signal information in a 500 x 
200 array of integers. Each integer rep- 
resents a pixel in the DPO’s display and 
is used to control intensity. As a signal 
is acquired over time, this array is con- 
tinuously updated with image after 
image of the signal. Unlike DSOs that 
decimate or throw away an enormous 
number of samples, the incoming sam- 
ples are acquired at rates comparable to 
an analog scope and are all used to cre- 
ate the image. As a result, engineers are 
finally protected against aliasing 
because of the abundance of samples 
collected and used by DPO. 

Creating this detailed image of a wave- 
form’s activity and intensity in hard- 
ware allows a real-time response simi- 
lar to an ART. The acquisition engine 
continuously samples at the maximum 
rate, triggering and building image after 
image with minimal dead time between 
acquisitions. A new snap.shot of the 
digital phosphor is sent to the display 
every 1/3 0th of a second, creating an 
image that responds to waveform activi- 
ty in real time. Even when the display 
is updated, the digital phosphor contin- 
ues to gather new samples. The parallel 
architecture and hardware-based pro- 



cessing enables the DPO to capture all 
the details and anomalies that occur in 
today’s complex, dynamic signals and 
to display as fast as the human eye can 
assimilate them. 

This real-time processing is what sets 
the DPO apart from post-processing 
modes, such as persistence, found in 
today’s DSOs. The post-processing in a 
DSO is executed in software on the nor- 
mally acquired waveforms, and it 
requires acquisition over a long period 
of time to build up the display, thus 
prohibiting instantaneous feedback. The 
time for creating this display is further 
exaggerated as multiple channels are 
turned on, since they use the same 
microprocessor. Plus during this pro- 
cessing time, the DSO is no longer 
acquiring new information and is 
forced to miss salient details on dynam- 
ic waveforms and important aperiodic 
events, often the very behavior an engi- 
neer is hoping to uncover and examine. 
DSOs consequently are limited to cap- 
turing infrequent snap shots of less 
than 1% of the available signals. 

The benefits of using a DPO in electron- 
ic design, debug and test are dramatic. 
By providing a third dimension of 
information, engineers gain new and 
important insights into the behavior of 
complex signals, enabling them to accu- 





rately interpret signal dynamics, 
including the mode of changes in the 
signal and the frequency of occurrence 
of signal phenomena. Instead of using 
two instruments — an ART to see all the 
nuances on the waveform and a DSO to 
capture, measure and analyze signal 
behavior - they can use one powerful 
tool. This will undoubtedly lead to 
more effective debug and performance 
verification, helping to streamline the 
overall design and maintenance tasks.

SELECTING AN OSCILLOSCOPE 

The first step in selecting an oscilloscope 
is to know what you’re expecting to see 
with the scope. In other words, what are 
the typical characteristics of the signals 
you need to capture and view. Are your 
signals of a complex nature? Are your sig- 



nals repetitive or single shot? What is the 
bandwidth and/or rise time of the signals 
or transients you need to captme? On 
what signal characteristics will you need 
to trigger - rimts, pulse widths, slew 
rates, glitches? How many signals do you 
need to display simultaneously? The 



answers to these questions will determine 
the type of scope you need. Which brings 
us to the actual oscilloscope and data 
sheet considerations: Digital Phosphor 
Oscilloscope, DSO. bandwidth, sample 
rate, waveform capture rate, record 
length, triggering and otlier capabilities.

OSCILLOSCOPE REFERENCE 



THE "5 TIMES" RULE FOR BANDWIDTH 

An Oscilloscope’s bandwidth specifica- 
tion gives you an idea of the instru- 
ment’s ability to handle high-frequency 
signals. If the bandwidth of your scope 
is inadequate, high fi:equency informa- 
tion will be filtered out and critical tim- 
ing information may be displayed inac- 
curately. It’s important to remember that 
a scope’s bandwidth is derived from 
how well it reproduces a sine wave. If 
you’re dealing with high-speed digital 
electronics, you may never see a sine 
wave. A good rule of thumb for deter- 
mining the bandwidth you need is to 
use the “5 times rule”: to figure out the 
bandwidth of the scope you need, multi- 
ply the highest frequency component of 
the signals you want to examine by five. 
This will typically give you better than 
2% accuracy in your measurements. 

In some applications you may not know 
the bandwidth of the signal of interest, 
but you will know the risetime. The fre- 
quency response of most scopes is 
designed so that a constant allows you 
to relate the bandwidth and risetime of 
the instrument using the equation: 

-3 dB Bandwidth x Risetime = K 

where: -3 dB Bandwidth is in Hertz, 
Risetime is the 10% to 90% risetime in 
seconds and K is a constant that depends 
on the oscilloscope input filter type. 

As a general rule of thumb, when select- 
ing an oscilloscope you can assume that 
the bandwidth to risetime relationship 
is about 0.4. Using this to calculate 
bandwidth will give you a ballpark fig- 
ure that is sufficient for scope selection. 

DPX WAVEFORM IMAGING PROCESSOR 

Tektronix’ DPOs are based on a new par- 
allel processing architecture that inte- 
grates the acquisition and display sys- 
tems. The proprietary DPX waveform 
imaging processor in the TDS 500D/700D 
was designed by Tektronix specifically 
for acquiring and managing the three 
dimensions of waveform information of 
the Digital Phosphor Oscilloscope. To 
ensure maximum throughput, it has 
distributed internal control and works 
independently of the other processors 
in the oscilloscope. 

The DPX waveform imaging processor is 
completely dedicated to the acquisition 
and database management process. It 



includes an acquisition rasterizer and the 
digital phosphor three-dimensional data- 
base array that emulates the behavior of 
chemical phosphorescence to provide a 
real-time intensity-graded display. The 
basic operation of the DPX waveform 
imaging processor is drawing repeated 
images in the digital phosphor, control- 
ling the rate of image decay, and periodi- 
cally sending snap shots of that informa- 
tion to the oscilloscope’s display system. 

SAMPLE RATE 

When considering digitizing oscillo- 
scope characteristics and specifications, 
it’s important to make a clear distinc- 
tion between sample rate and waveform 
capture rate. A digitizing oscilloscope’s 
sample rate is specified in Samples per 
Second and indicates how frequently 
the scope samples the input signal. 

With higher sample rate, the signal is 
sampled more frequently allowing 
greater signal resolution. 

The Importance of Adequate Sample 
Rate - The Nyquist sampling theorem 
states that the signal of interest must be 
sampled at least twice the rate of its 
highest frequency component to accu- 
ratelv reproduce it. While this is true “in 



theory,” sometimes it isn’t enough in 
practice. In reality, today’s high speed 
digital signals should be sampled at least 
5 times the rate of the highest frequency 
component (2.5 times the Nyquist rate) 
to be accurately reconstructed. Real-time 
sampling allows full bandwidth single 
shot acquisition and eliminates the need 
for repetitive sampling techniques. 

TRIGGERING 

Extended triggering capabilities offered in 
most Tektronix oscilloscopes allow you to 
capture complex signals for device char- 
acterization or troubleshooting. They also 
provide more selective trigger control 
than is available with conventional edge 
triggering. In addition, their sophisticated 
user interfaces allow rapid setup of trig- 
ger parameters to increase productivity. 

Tektronix oscilloscopes allow you to 
trigger on pulses defined by amplitude 
(such as runt pulses), qualified by time 
(pulse width, ghtch, slew rate, setup- 
and-hold and time-out), and delineated 
by logic state or pattern (logic triggering). 
Combinations of extended and conven- 
tional triggers also help display video 
and other difficult-to-capture signals. 
Advanced triggering capabilities such as 
these deliver a large degree of flexibility

RECORD LENGTH 

Maximum oscilloscope record lengths 
are available from 1 K points to 8 M 
points. Tektronix oscilloscopes provide 
adjustable record lengths that allow you 
to set the record length you need for a 
particular application - depending on 
the detail you need to see. If you are 
simply monitoring an extremely stable 
sinusoidal signal, for example, a 500 
point record length may be adequate. 

But if you’re tr3dng to find the causes of 
timing anomalies in a complex digital 
data stream, a long record length is more 
appropriate. In addition, long record 
lengths provide the detail you need to 
capture and analyze single-shot events.

convenient autoscaling of waveforms 
on Tektronix TDS Series oscilloscopes. 
Also the low VSWR (Return Loss) per- 
formance minimizes measurement 
errors commonly associated with inter- 
facing with complex electrical signals. 

Ideal for use in pulse shape compliance 
testing of high speed electrical commu- 
nication signals. 




P5210. 



DIFFERENTIAL SIGNAL ACQUISITION 
SOLUTIONS 

Four products are available for acquir- 
ing differential signals. The ADA400A 
1 MHz Differential Preamplifier allows 
single-ended oscilloscope measurements 
of very low signal levels (<10 pV) that 
are not ground referenced. The P5200, 
P5205, P5210 Differential Prohes meas- 
ure differential voltages up to 5,600 V 
and have bandwidths up to 100 MHz. 
The new P5210 Differential Probe meas- 
ures differential voltages up to 5,600 V. 
With a bandwidth of 50 MHz, the P5210 
probe easily measures those fast dV/dt 
transitions in switching power devices.

TDS Oscilloscopes 

The TDS is a family of innovative oscilloscopes 
featuring multi-processor speed and flexibility, 
advanced acquisition and triggering capabilities 
and a unique graphical user interface for intuitive 
operation. 

With the TDS, Tektronix introduced a new and 
innovative generation of digitizing oscilloscopes 
designed to keep pace with ciurent and evolving 
needs across the electronics industry. 



To address the complexity of the signals that the 
era of convergence brings, Tektronix’ Digital 
Phosphor Oscilloscopes display, store and analyze 
complex signals in real-time, using three dimen- 
sions of signal information: amplitude, time and 
distribution of amplitude of over time. These 
TDS’s go beyond analog real-time (ART) and digi- 
tal storage oscilloscopes (DSO) by incorporating 
an information-rich, real-time display, that sur- 
passes any analog or digital scope’s capabilities.

The TDS 700D Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes. 



TDS 3000 Series Digital Phosphor 
Oscilloscopes. 



Composite video signal. 



TDS combines the performance needed 
with the ease of use demanded by cus- 
tomers in digital design; research and 
development; electromechanical design; 
power supply design; biophysical/bio- 
medical high-speed component devel- 
opment and characterization; and 
telecommunications design and auto- 
mated test. 

The TDS offers significant advantages 
over other oscilloscopes in four major 
areas: 

HIGH-FIDELITY SIGNAL ACQUISITION 

TDS offers sample rates ranging from 
100 MS/s to 10 GS/s and bandwidths 
from 60 MHz to 8 GHz. TDS couples 
this performance with wide dynamic 
range, vertical resolution up to 13-Bits, 
fast overdrive recovery and 1 mV/div 
sensitivity. You’ll find a model that pre- 
cisely fits your needs. 

POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE TRIGGERING 

TDS 3000, 500, 600 and 700 models 
feature very innovative and accessible 
logic triggering features that can isolate 
glitches, runts and timing problems 
quickly and reliably. Video triggering 
for NTSC, PAL, SECAM and custom 
video standards makes the TDS 3000 an 
excellent choice for video and display 



in all TDS Scopes to permit more meas- 
urement flexibility, instant response to 
commands and live waveform math 
including FFT and waveform pass/fail 
testing in the TDS 400, 500, 600, 700 
and 800. Displays may be sent directly 
to a printer or plotter or exported as 
EPS (Encapsulated Postscript) or PCX 
(Microsoft Windows) files for use with 
common graphics and word processing 
software. The DPX™ waveform imaging 
processor makes the TDS 500D/700D 
the highest performance DPO’s by pro- 
viding the fastest waveform capture rate 
a deepest digital phosphor. 

AFFORDABLE PERFORMANCE THAT IS 
EASY TO USE 

A graphical user interface (GUI) makes 
operation intuitive. A familiar front- 
panel layout puts dedicated knobs for 
vertical, horizontal and trigger controls 
right where you expect to see them. 

This layout makes it easy for casual 
users to operate the basic oscilloscope 
features. Explanatory icons, pop-up 
menus, on line help and the VGA-quali- 
ty display quickly guide users to even 
the most powerful measurement fea- 
tures. A color VGA display is available 
with the TDS 3000, 600 and 700. 



64 QAM Modulation with histograms. 

system design. Specialized HDTV trig- 
gering is available on the TDS 3000, 
500, 600 and 700. 6 GHz trigger band- 
width in the TDS 800 and very low jitter 
make it ideal for high-speed component 
characterization and for telecommuni- 
cations manufacturing, installation and 
maintenance. Four channels of 3 GHz 
real-time acquisition makes the 
TDS 694C a necessity for high-speed 
bus design applications.

Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes 

TDS 500D • TDS 700D 



The TDS 500D/TDS 700D 
Family of Digital Phosphor 
Oscilloscopes 

The TDS 500D/700D oscilloscopes are 
the first in the TDS family of Digital 
Phosphor Oscilloscopes (DPOs) designed 
to keep pace with current and evolving 
needs in advanced electronic design and 
debug. DPOs deliver a new level of 
insight that makes dealing with complex 
signals elementary - a new level of 
insight that must be seen to be believed. 

DPOs capture, store, display and ana- 
lyze, in real-time, three dimensions of 
signal information: amplitude, time and 
distribution of amplitude over time. 

The benefit of this new third dimension 
of information is an interpretation of 
the signal dynamics, including instanta- 
neous changes and the frequency of 
occurrence displayed in the form of 
quantitative intensity information. 

HIGH FIDELITY SIGNAL ACQUISITION 

The high waveform capture rate of the 
TDS 500D/700D DPO, together with its 
high bandwidth and sample rate, deliv- 
ers instantaneous signal feedback to 
show the true signals that other scopes 
may be missing. The DPO acquisition 
acquires over 1000 times more data 
than traditional DSOs, allowing the 
capture of complex signals, reducing 
debugging times from hours to seconds. 

Channels can be transparently com- 
bined to achieve higher sample rates 
and longer record lengths. The record 
length can be optionally increased to 8 
M points, providing a high-resolution 
representation of the signal over a long 
period of time. 

All of the TDS products provide wide 
dynamic range, flat response, fast over- 
drive recovery, calibrated DC offset, 1 
mV/div sensitivity (10 mV maximum 
sensitivity on TDS 794D), 1 ns peak 
detect and internal calibration. 

POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE TRIGGERING 

In addition to basic triggering such as 
edge and pulse-width, these Digital 
Phosphor Oscilloscopes have several 
trigger modes tailored for specific 
design and debug applications. Logic 
and pulse triggers, including 
setup/hold, glitch, slew rate and time- 
out triggers, capture hard-to-catch digi- 



tal design problems. The optional video 
trigger provides line and field selection 
for NTSC, PAL and HDTV standards. 
The optional communications trigger 
capability addresses needs to acquire a 
wide variety of AMI, CMI. NRZ and 
Ethernet communication signals. 

ADVANCED PERFORMANCE FEATURES 

Automatic Measurements eliminate the 
need for manually measuring the wave- 
form against the graticule or with cur- 
sors. Measurement gating, (gating not 
available for DPO operation) allows the 
user to select a specific part of the live 
waveform for measurement. 
Measurement statistics (min, max, 
mean and standard deviation), give 
additional information about the varia- 
tions in the measurements over time 
(for example, worst case excursions), 
increasing the confidence in the quality 
of the measurements. 




The horizontal histogram of the selected 
region of the waveform shows the character 
of a metastable flip-flop output. 



Waveform Histograms allow the exami- 
nation of the statistical nature of the 
signal. Horizontal histograms, which 
are useful for evaluating signal jitter, 
sample the waveform within a specified 
region, sort the values into time bins 
and plot the accumulated bin values 
versus time. Vertical histograms, which 
are useful for evaluating signal noise, 
sample the waveform within a specified 
region, sort the values into amplitude 
bins and plot the accumulated bin val- 
ues versus amplitude. 

For histograms of DPO acquisitions 
(both live and stored), the specified 
region can be repositioned and will 
update to reflect the underlying 3 
dimensional data base (32 bits in shal- 



low mode, 64 bits in deep mode). 

Communication Mask Testing (available 
as an option) allows mask compliance 
testing of a wide variety of communica- 
tion signals to industry standards. 
Specialized measurement accessories, 
unique trigger modes, built-in optical 
reference receiver filters, mask autoset 
and mask violation counting make these 
measurements easily and repeatahly.

Instantaneous Power and Energy to 
eliminate manual calculations. TDSJITl 
performs a suite of jitter measurements 
with unprecedented accuracy on single- 
shot waveforms. Jitter information can 
be displayed as statistics, histograms or 
profiled. TDSPSMl introduces a revolu- 
tionary way for making timing measure- 
ments by providing statistics on specific 
data and clock edges that are fully time- 
correlated. This application also per- 
forms automated AC timing measure- 
ments on all parameters in single-shot 
acquisitions. TDSCEMl performs a 
suite of automated eye diagram meas- 
urements on SONET/SDH and Fibre 
Channel standards. These measure- 
ments include eye height, eye width

OSCILLOSCOPES 69 





Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes 

TDS 500D • TDS 700D 



Active Probes such as the P6249 and 
P6245 active prohes were designed 
specifically for the DPO products. For 
example, the P6249 (4 GHz prohe only) 
is capable of achieving the full 2 GHz 
bandwidth on a TDS 794D, while pro- 
viding low loading. 

The P6339A Buffered Passive Probe is 
designed to provide 500 MHz bandwidth 
at the probe time for the TDS 794D. 

Optical-to-electrical Converters (P6701B, 
P6703B) allow convenient analysis of 
optical transmission signals with the 
oscilloscope. Both short- and long-wave- 
length optical converters are compatible 



with the industry-standard wavelengths 
for SONET/SDH and Fibre Channel. 

High-bandwidth Differential Probes 
(P6248, P6247) enable high bandwidth 
(up to 1.7 GHz) differential measure- 
ments while maintaining high common- 
mode rejection. 

Current Probes such as the TCP202 and 
High-Voltage Differential Probes such 
as the P5205 and P5210 allow safe, 
high-power measurements. Direct Probe 
Readouts use information from the 
probes to display measurements in 
units of Amps, Volts and Watts.

MEASUREMENT SYSTEM 
Automatic Waveform Measurements - 

Period, frequency, + width, - width, rise time, fall 
time, + duty cycle, - duty cycle, delay, phase, 
burst width, high, low, max. min, peak to peak, 
amplitude, + overshoot, - overshoot, mean, 
cycle mean, RMS, cycle RMS, area, cycle area, 
extinction ratio (ratio, dB, %) and mean optical 
power. Continuous update of up to four meas- 
urements on any combination of waveforms. 
Measurement Statistics - Display minimum 
and maximum or mean and standard devia- 
tion on any displayed single-waveform meas- 
urements. 

Thresholds - Settable in percentage or voltage. 



Gating - Any region of the waveform may be 
isolated for measurement using vertical bars. 
Snapshot - Performs all measurements on 
any one waveform showing results from one 
instant in time. 

Cursor Measurements - Absolute, 

Delta: Volts, Time, Frequency and NTSC IRE 
and line number (with video trigger option). 
Cursor Types - Horizontal bars (volts), verti- 
cal bars (time); operated independently or in 
tracking mode. 

WAVEFORM PROCESSING 
Waveform Functions - Sin(x)/x or linear 
interpolation. Average, Envelope. 

Advanced Waveform Functions (optional on 
TDS 500D) - FFT, Integration, Differentiation. 
Arithmetic Operators - Add, Subtract, 
Multiply, Divide, Invert. 

Autoset - Single-button, automatic setup on 
selected input signal for vertical, horizontal and 
trigger systems. Also automatically normalizes 
signals to standard masks when used with the 
mask testing option. 

Waveform Limit Testing - Compares incom- 
ing or math waveform to a reference wave- 
form's upper and lower limits. 

Waveform Histograms - Both vertical and hor- 
izontal histograms, with periodically updated 
measurements, allow statistical distributions to be 
analyzed over any region of the signal. For his- 
tograms on DPO acquisitions, both live and 
stored, the specified region can be repositioned 
and will update to reflect the underlying 3 dimen- 
sional data base, in both YT and XY modes (32 
bits in shallow mode, 64 bits in deep mode). 
Mask Testing (Optional) - in addition to the 
standard communication masks in the instru- 
ment, the masks can be edited on the screen. 
Together with automatic waveform scaling, the 
mask tests give rapid verification of a digital bit 
stream's conformance to pulse templates and 
eye pattern masks. For optical conformance 
testing, the internal Fibre Channel and 
SONET/SDH optical reference receiver filters 
provide convenient test setup which is compli- 
ant to Industry standards. 

ZOOM CHARACTERISTICS 

The zoom feature allows waveforms to be 
expanded or compressed In both vertical and 
horizontal axes. Allows precise comparison and 
study of fine waveform detail without affecting 
ongoing acquisitions. When used with Hi-res or 
Average acquisition modes. Zoom provides an 
effective vertical dynamic range or 1000 divi- 
sions or 100 screens. Zoom features not avail- 
able on DPO operations. 

Dual Window Zoom - Dual graticules simul- 
taneously show selected and zoomed wave- 
forms. Up to two zoom boxes show areas on 



the selected trace that are being magnified, 
and the two magnified areas can be over- 
lapped for quick comparison. Color of zoomed 
trace matches selected trace. 

DISPLAY CHARACTERISTICS

The Tektronix TDS Communication 
Signal Analyzer package gives you the 
most comprehensive oscilloscope solu- 
tions for connecting to, capturing, and 
characterizing optical and electrical sig- 
nals in high-speed communication 
designs. Based on the TDS 500D/700D 
family of Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes 
(DPOs), the Communication Signal 
Analyzer options and measurement 
accessories tailor the oscilloscopes for 
engineers debugging, characterizing and 
verifying the compliance of communica- 
tion systems to international standards. 
These communications options comple- 
ment tlie Tektronix 11 80 1C Digital 



Sampling Oscilloscope and the CSA 
803C Communication Signal Analyzer, 
which provide bandwidths up to 50 GHz 
and measurement features tailored for 
optical component manufacturing and 
research and development applications. 

CONNECTING TO THE SIGNAL 

Whether the signals are electrical (differ- 
ential or single-ended) or optical, con- 
necting the design to the measurement 
system is no easy matter. A wide selec- 
tion of complementary measurement 
accessories, optimized for use with the 
TDS oscilloscopes, are available to make 
probing convenient and reliable, while 
maintaining high accuracy. 

Electrical Communication 
Adapters such as the AFTDS ease con- 
nection to differential communication 
signals, such as DSl, DS2 and El, by ter- 
minating the signal in 100 Q, 110 ^2 or 
120 Q and adapting various connector 
styles (bantam, Siemens and RJ-11) to the 
oscilloscope’s 50 Q BNC environment. 

The AMT75 75 Q Adapter simplifies 
connection of video and communication 
signals such as DS3 and E3 to the oscil- 
loscope. This adapter supplies a precise 
termination to signals up to 1 GHz. 

Optical-to-electrical Converters allow 
convenient analysis of optical transmis- 
sion signals. The P6701B can be used for 
Fibre Channel signals and the P6703B 
can be used for SONET/SDH signals. 
They provide high gain (1 V/mW) for sig- 
nals up to 1 GHz and as large as 1 mW 
(0 dBm). The P6723 optical logic probe 
converts SONET/SDH signals into PECL 
digital signals suitable for use as triggers.

Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes 

TDS 500D • TDS 700D 



CAPTURING THE SIGNAL 

High Bandwidth and Sample Rates, up 
to 2 GHz and 1 GS/s per channel, 
enable the user to capture the signal 
with high fidelity. Channels can be 
transparently combined to achieve 
higher sample rates, up to 4 GS/s. 

Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes capture, 
store, display and analyze, in real-time, 
three dimensions of signal information: 
amplitude, time and distribution of 
amplitude over time. The benefit of this 
new third dimension of information is 
an interpretation of the signal dynam- 
ics, including instantaneous changes 
and the frequency of occurrence dis- 
played in the form of quantitative 
intensity information. 

In addition to standeud Advanced 
Trigger modes such as edge, pulse- 
width, logic and optional video trigger, 
these oscilloscopes have trigger modes 
tailored for communication design and 
debug. The optional Comm trigger 
addresses the need to acquire a wide 
variety of Alternate-Mark Inversion 
(AMI), Code-Mark Inversion (CMI) and 
Non-Return to Zero (NRZ) communica- 
tion signals. These trigger modes may 
be selected manually during routine 
troubleshooting, but are automatically 
selected when mask testing is enabled. 

AMI mode triggers on standard AMI sig- 
nals (including DSl, DS3, El, E2, E3 and 
STS-1). “Isolated ones” triggering is avail- 
able on ANSI Tl.102 AMI signals (includ- 
ing DSl and DS3). CMI triggering isolates 
positive or negative one pulses and zero 
pulses in standard CMI signals (including 
STS-3, STMIE, DS4 and E4). NRZ trigger 
selects rising or falling edges, or any of 
eight 3 -Bit serial patterns in NRZ signals 
(including SONET/SDH, Fibre Channel, 
FDDI, 143, 270, 360 and 1485 Mb/s serial 
video signals). The serial trigger mode 
allows identification of data-dependent 
anomalies in eye diagrams. 

Long streams of serial data, up to 4 ms 
at full resolution, can be captured 
with optional long record length (up 
to 8 M points). 




An example of the selection of isolated-one 
AMI trigger mode. 



CHARACTERIZING THE SIGNAL 

Optional Communication Mask 
Testing allows mask compliance testing 
of a wide variety of communication sig- 
nals against industry standards. The 
instruments are set up for mask testing 
by selecting the standard from the user 
interface. This selection sets up the trig- 
ger system and vertical and horizontal 
scaling and displays the appropriate 
mask. A specialized autoset scales and 
offsets the signal to the selected stan- 
dard mask, making mask testing easy 
and repeatable. The standard communi- 
cation masks in the instrument can be 
edited directly on the screen to create 
custom masks, allowing up to 8 regions 
with 50 vertices. 

In addition to the specialized optical 
measurement accessories, the oscillo- 
scopes have nominal internal 4th-order 
Bessel-Thompson filters for diagnostic 
testing of Fibre Channel and 
SONET/SDH signals. Optional internal 
SONET/SDH (Opt. 3C) and Fibre 
Channel (Opt. 4C) optical reference 
receiver filters on channel 1 of the 
products are also available. These refer- 
ence receivers, required for optical 
compliance testing by ANSI FC-PH, 
Bellcore GR-253-Core and ITU-T G.957, 
can be switched in and out at the touch 
of a button. 

Automatic Measurements eliminate the 
need for manually measuring waveform

average optical power (in dBm) and 
extinction ratio (expressed as a ratio, in

and Fibre Channel applications).

USER-INSTALLED, OSCILLOSCOPE RES- 
IDENT JITTER ANALYSIS PACKAGE 

Electronic design engineers in semicon- 
ductor industries develop ICs with high 
clock speeds and reduced timing mar- 
gins. As clock frequencies in the indus- 
try continue to increase, timing margins 
become more critical. Sophisticated 
techniques are required to properly 
characterize the placement of these 
clock edges. Customers in the computer 
industry need to ensure that the timing 
margins in their designs are not violat- 
ed because of excessive jitter. 



The TDS 500D/600C/700D oscilloscopes 
have superb jitter analysis capabilities 
on non-contiguous clock cycles ^with 
their histogram and statistics capabili- 
ties. The Tektronix TDSJITl Jitter 
Analysis Software will extend that capa- 
bility by making jitter measurements on 
contiguous clock cycles from single-shot 
acquisitions. TDSJITl provides many 
key timing parameter measurements. 
These are specifically designed to meet 
the jitter measurement needs of today’s 
high speed digital designers. 
Measurements can be made on differen- 
tial signals and between two separate 
input signals. Profile plots quickly show 
how various timing parameters change 
over time. Comprehensive statistics and 
histograms of timing parameters 
enhance the powerful analysis capabili- 
ties of TDSJITl. 

TDSJITl Jitter Analysis Software is a 
software package from Tektronix that 
delivers industry standard jitter and tim- 
ing analysis capabilities. It comes on 
floppy disks, is easily installed in a TDS 
oscilloscope, and doesn’t require any 
external processing or connections. After 
installation, the application is accessible 
from the oscilloscope front panel.

SIGNAL MEASUREMENT PACKAGE 

Electronic design engineers, working 
for communication equipment manu- 
facturers in the communications indus- 
try, develop products with standard 
communication interfaces. These engi- 
neers need tools to properly character- 
ize their designs and verify compliance 
to industry standards. These standards 
include ANSI Tl. 102-1993 and ITU-T 
G.703. Characterization of these electri- 
cal signals include mask testing as well 
as parametric testing. 



Option 2C, the Tektronix TDS 
Communication Signal Analyzer pack- 
age, gives you the most comprehensive 
oscilloscope solutions for connecting to, 
capturing, and characterizing optical 
and electrical signals in high-speed 
communication designs. Based on the 
TDS 500D/700D family of Digital 
Phosphor Oscilloscopes (DPOs), Option 
2C and various measurement acces- 
sories tailor the oscilloscope for engi- 
neers debugging, characterizing, and 
verifying the compliance of communica- 
tion systems to international standards. 

This capability is further enhanced by

IDENT PROCESSOR SIGNAL MEASURE- 
MENT PACKAGE 

Microprocessors are used in a variety of 
industries and sub-systems. However, all 
these processors need to be integrated in 
a manner that will allow optimal opera- 
tion. The various processor manuals 
detail the electrical and interface per- 
formance that is required for proper 
operation of these processors. As an 
example, the Intel Processor Developer’s 
Manuals can be found on the WWW at 
http://intel.com/design/processor/. These 
measurements are generic to micro- 
processors and are useful across different 
processor types and across different gen- 
erations of a processor family. 



Many of the measurements in 
TDSPSMl can be performed today 
using the oscilloscope automatic meas- 
urements or histograms. TDSPSMl 
enhances this capability by providing 
direct measurements for each individ- 
ual edge or pulse and showing detailed 
statistics. For example, the setup time 
measurement in TDSPSMl is made for 
a specific data edge to the exact, corre- 
sponding clock edge. 

TDSPSMl comes on a single floppy 
disk, is easily installed in a TDS oscil- 
loscope, and doesn’t require any exter- 
nal processing or connections. After 
installation, the application is accessi- 
ble from the oscilloscope front panel.

Instrument to Local Area Network 
(LAN) Connectivity 

Control your Tektronix TDS Series oscilloscope 
from any networked PC. Check on its status, or 
capture waveforms any time you want from your 
office, another site, or from anywhere using 
WaveStar™ application software or your own 
software. Or command your TDS Series oscillo- 
scope to print to a networked printer. 

The Tektronix GPIB-LAN Adapter takes advantage 
of the fact that many of today’s computers are con- 
nected together through an Ethernet lOBaseT LAN. 

PRINT TO NETWORKED PRINTERS 

Using any web browser, select the networked 
printer to which your TDS Series oscilloscope will 
print and route your hardcopy output to your high 
quality monochrome or color networked printer. 

WINDOWS 95/98 OR NT 4.0 COMPATIBILITY 

You don’t need to understand or program 
Ethernet protocols. Both communications 
and Virtual Instrument Software Architecture 



(VISA) software for Windows 95/98 or NT 4.0 is 
included free with the GPIB-LAN Adapter. Now, 
you can also perform waveform capture from 
your TDS Series oscilloscopes across the LAN by 
using Tektronix WaveStar for Oscilloscopes 
application software. Or write a program using 
C, C-I-+, or Microsoft Visual Basic to capture data 
or control your instrument. As long as the pro- 
gram is written using the standard VISA inter- 
face, the GPIB-LAN Adapter’s software will turn 
your PC into a GPIB Talker, Listener, Controller. 

NETWORK DETAILS 

The AD007 implements a full range of adapter 
functions and Ethernet-based TCP/IP protocols. 
It operates with all of the popular network pro- 
tocols such as BOOTP, DHCP, DNS, LPD, HTTP, 
and FTP. 

CONFIGURATION AND STATISTICS

EASE OF INSTALLATION 

Simply connect your AD007 to your 
LAN with the cable provided, connect 
the GPIB interface to your instruments, 
and power up the unit. It automatically 
requests an IP address from the net- 
work’s Boot Server, or this can be manu- 
ally entered using the adapter’s internal 
web page. Upon power-up, the unit also 
performs hardware diagnostics/self-test. 
Status indicators on the unit give evi- 
dence of successful completion of this 
testing, connection to the LAN, and 
both LAN and GPIB traffic. 

Any number of AD007 Adapters may be 
used to connect any combination of 
GPIB devices to the network. (NOTE: 
Limit of 14 devices per GPIB cluster.)

Digital Phosphor Oscilloscopes 

NEW TDS 3012 • TDS 3014 • TDS 3032 • TDS 3034 • TDS 3052 • TDS 3054 



The TDS 3000 Series of 
Digital Phosphor 
Oscilloscopes 

The TDS 3000 oscilloscopes are the 
lowest priced, most portable Digital 
Phosphor Oscilloscopes (DPOs). Now 
every design engineer and technician 
can take advantage of the tremendous 
benefits of DPOs. DPOs deliver a new 
level of insight that makes dealing with 
complex signals simple. DPOs display, 
store, and analyze, in real-time three 
dimensions of signal information: 
amplitude, time, and distribution of 
amplitude over time. 

BENEFITS OF DPO 

DPOs have an intensity graded color 
display that provides information 
about the frequency of occurrence of 
signal amplitudes and widths. This 
helps the user locate and characterize 
waveform anomalies that can be elu- 
sive on traditional Digital Storage 
Oscilloscopes. The fast update rate of 
DPOs also makes it easier to capture 
and display infrequent waveforms or 
waveform variations. 

QUICK TO LEARN AND QUICK TO USE 

The TDS 3000 Series graphical user 
interface offers a new operating mode 
called QuickMenu. This quick access 
user interface makes the main oscillo- 
scope controls accessible with a push 
of a single button. Included with every 
scope is an On-Line Tour disk that runs 
in the oscilloscope. This disk gives an 
overview of the product’s operation 
and capabilities. 

FLEXIBLE FEATURES FOR EVERY 
APPLICATION 

The portable form factor allows the 
instrument to go wherever it is needed. 
The Communication and Application 
Modules enable the instrument to be 
configured for specific applications or 
upgraded without returning it to the 
manufacturer. The TekProbe® Level II 
interface provides power to a range of 
application specific accessories. 

APPLICATION MODULES 

With the application module concept, 
the TDS 3000 Series can be easily adapt- 
ed to the needs of the user. These mod- 
ules can be easily installed by the user 
and the scope, upon power up indicates 



which modules are installed. Currently, 
there are three application modules 
available for the TDS 3000 Series — an 
FFT module, an advanced trigger mod- 
ule and an extended video module. In 
addition, there are twm communication 
modules available — a GPIB/RS-232 
module and a VGA/RS-232 module. 
Centronics port is standard. 

TDS3FFT - FFT MODULE 

When this module is installed in the 
TDS 3000 Series scope, the scope 
becomes an excellent troubleshooting 
aid for: 

► Testing impulse response of filters 
and systems. 

► Measuring harmonic content and 
distortions in systems. 

► Identifying and locating noise and 
interference sources 

► Analyzing vibration 

► Analyzing harmonics in 50 and 60 Hz 
power lines 

The TDS 3FFT application module pro- 
vides the following features 

► FFT Windows: Four FFT windows 
(Rectangular, Hamming, Hanning 
and Blackman-Harris) let you match 
the optimum window to the signal 
you are analyzing 

► Analyze repetive, single-shot and 
stored waveforms: An FFT waveform 
on any actively-acquired signal, last 
acquired signal or signal stored in the 
reference memory can be displayed 

► The FFT vertical graticule can be set 
to either dB or linear rms 

► The time signals and FFT waveforms 
can be shown on the display at the 
same time. This helps in the quick 
analysis of circuit or system problems 




TDS 3000 DPO answers today’s power 
measurement problems. 



TYPICAL APPLICATION FOR THE 
FFT MODULE 

In the design or analysis of power sup- 
plies, it is important to check the har- 
monics in the power supply’s load cur- 
rent. The following figure shows the 
harmonic analysis of a 250 watt class D 
power supply. Using the scope’s cur- 
sors, you can measure the frequency 
and magnitude of the individual fre- 
quency components. 

TDS 3TRG - ADVANCED TRIGGER 
MODULE 

When this module is installed in the 
TDS 3000 Series scope, an advanced 
trigger menu is added to the scope 
with the appropriate logic and pulse 
triggering capability. 

LOGIC TRIGGER FEATURES 

Logic triggering is extremely useful in 
the troubleshooting of digital circuits. 
The oscilloscope is triggered when two 
signals meet a Boolean trigger condi- 
tion. This module provides pattern and 
state logic trigger modes. 

Pattern Trigger. 

Pattern triggering triggers the oscillo- 
scope when two signals become logical- 
ly true or false. Basically, the pattern- 
triggering feature triggers the oscillo- 
scope from the output of a two-input 
AND, OR, NAND or NOR logic gate. 

You can specify time constraints and 
signal threshold levels as part of the 
triggering condition. The trigger is use- 
ful for digital logic troubleshooting. 

State Trigger. 

State triggering triggers the oscillo- 
scope when a state signal is true or 
false at the time a clock signal transi- 
tion is true. This trigger is useful for 
troubleshooting digital logic synchro- 
nous state machines. 

PULSE TRIGGER FEATURES 

Pulse triggering triggers the oscillo- 
scope when a signal meets a timing or 
threshold condition. The advanced trig- 
ger module provides three pulse trigger 
modes: pulse width, runt pulse and 
slew rate. 

Pulse Width (or Glitch). 

Pulse-width triggering triggers the oscil- 
loscope when a signalpulse width is les 
than, greater tlian, equal to or not equal

to a specified pulse width, this trigger is 
useful for digital logic troubleshooting. 

Runt Pulse. 

Runt-pulse triggering triggers the oscil- 
loscope when a signal pulse is less than 
a specified threshold level. You can also 
specify runt pulse-width parameters. 
This ti’igger is useful for troubleshotting 
bus-contention problems. 

Slew Rate. 

Slew-rate triggering triggers the oscillo- 
scope when a signal’s slew rate (rise or 
fall time) is less than, greater than, 
equal to or not equal to a specified slew 
rate. This trigger is useful for trou- 
bleshooting digital bus transcievers, 
transmission lines and op-amp circuits. 

TDS 3VID - EXTENDED VIDEO 
MODULE 

All TDS 3000 Series oscilloscopes come 
standard with NTSC, PAL and SECAM 
(All Fields or All Lines) triggering capa- 
bility. The TDS 3VID application mod- 
ule extends this basic video triggering 
by adding the following features. 

Video QuickMenu. 

This Video QuickMenu function allows 
you to display a bottom and side menu 
that contains video functions useful for 
displaying and measuring broadcast 



standard waveforms, including trigger 
source, when to trigger, video graticule 
and video autoset. 

Video Autoset. 

The autoset function automatically 
adjusts the vertical, horizontal and 
video trigger settings to display a video 
waveform triggered on all lines and 
fields. You can then manually adjust 
controls to optimize the display. This 
function is available in the Video 
QuickMenu and in the Acquire menu. 

Custom Video. 

Using the custom video function allows 
you to specify custom horizontal scan 
rates in order to trigger on non-broad- 
cast video waveforms, such as those 
used by computer monitors and med- 
ical equipment displays. This following 
figure shows the TDS 3000 scope trig- 
gering on a scan rate of 26.2 kHz. 

Line Count Trigger. 

Sometimes it is necessary to view a 
single line of the video waveform. For 
example, the programming information 
in the NTSC signal is sometimes found 
on Line 20. Line Count triggering 
allows you to trigger on any particular 
line by scrolling through the line num- 
bers and selecting the one you want. 




Using the TDS 3000 DPO for video mainte- 
nance and service measurement. 



Field Holdoff. 

The field holdoff function provides the 
capability to specify a number of fields 
to wait before re-enabling triggering. 
This allows you to trigger on a single 
filed (e.g. field 1 or field 3 of NTSC) 
instead of both field 1 and field 3. 

Video Graticules. 

The video graticule function provides 
the capability for the user to change the 
standard oscilloscope graticule to either 
IRE or mV depending on the signal for- 
mat. Video graticules make it easier to 
measure and analyze video waveforms.

Tektronix' Most Popular DSO 

The TDS 200 Oscilloscopes have quickly become 
the benchmark for low-cost oscilloscopes. 
Offering an unbeatable combination of perform- 
ance, reliability and versatility, the TDS 200 
Series offers breakthrough digital and real-time 
advantages at low-cost analog oscilloscope 
prices. And with the introduction of the TDS 
224, Tektronix now brings the digital perform- 
ance of the TDS 200 to customers that need four 
full-featured channels. 

AFFORDABLE DIGITAL PERFORMANCE 

No other digital oscilloscope offers as much 
bandwidth and sample rate for the price. By 
sampling at 10 and 16 times their band widths on 
all channels, the TDS 200 Series oscilloscopes 
provide accurate real-time acquisition up to their 
full bandwidth. 

VERSATILITY AND FLEXIBILITY 

The portable form factor provides increased ver- 
satility, allowing the instrument to be easily 
moved or safely stored away when not in use. 

EASY TO USE 

The user interface is similar to that of an analog 
oscilloscope, but with improvements that reduce 
learning time and increase efficiency. 



THE PERSONAL OSCILLOSCOPE 

The TDS 200 Series oscilloscopes are designed 
for people who demand the ultimate in oscillo- 
scope value. If an inexpensive yet high perform- 
ance oscilloscope is needed for the bench, pro- 
duction line, or training lab, a TDS 200 Series 
Oscilloscope is the best choice.

11800 Series 

The Tektronix 11800 Series is a powerful set of analysis tools that alter your funda- 
mental expectations of an oscilloscope. Most revolutionary is the simplification and 
automation of the entire measurement and analysis process. Accuracy, sensitivity, 
bandwidth, offset and overdrive recovery are provided by a well-planned instru- 
ment family having plug-in versatility and performance. Multiprocessor architec- 
ture allows for simultaneous display of up to eight waveforms and up to six dynam- 
ic, “live” measurement readouts. The automation needs of scientific and production 
environments are easily met by integrating these instruments into a measurement 
system through RS-232-C or GPIB interfaces. 



CSA Series 

The Communications Signal Analyzer (CSA) offers signal analysis and the powerful 
measurement capabilities required to analyze high-speed digital communication 
signals. Features of the CSA 803C include histograms, mask testing and a color- 
graded display, allowing you to perform accurate measurements such as jitter, noise 
and phase.

SD-14 High Impedance Probe 
Sampler 

The SD-14 is a dual-channel, 3 GHz 
probe sampler designed for high-imped- 
ance signal acquisition where a 50 Q 
acquisition system is not the optimal 
solution. The SD-14 is ideal for high- 
speed device characterization such as 
ECL, CMOS, ACL and GaAs testing. 

The 100 kn input impedance and 0.5 
pF capacitance results in very low load- 
ing of the device under test. The 7 V 
dynamic range and ±3.5 V offset range, 
makes the SD-14 suitable for testing all 
digital logic families as well as most 
analog circuits. 

The SD-14 consists of two samplers, 
each attached at the end of a 1.0 meter 
cable for easy circuit probing. The mod- 
ular architecture of the CSA 
803C/11801C enables the use of extend- 
ed samplers, bringing a new level of 
performance to sampling scopes. In 
conjunction with the 11801C and SM- 
11 multi-channel unit, it is possible to 
configure up to 136 channels of high- 
impedance, high-bandwidth acquisition 
with measurement accuracy approach- 
ing 140 ps. 

SD-14 Option 01 adds a longer probe tip, 
two probe-to-ECB (etched circuit board) 
adapters, and two probe-to-SMB adapters. 
These ease probing of plated holes (as 
found in Outboards for IC testers) and 
semi -permanent connections. 

SD-20 Loopthrough 
Sampling Head 

The SD-20 is a single-channel, 20 GHz 
loopthrough sampling head designed 



for low-loss testing in applications 
such as microwave systems research 
and development, digital device char- 
acterization and high-speed digital 
communications circuit design. It pro- 
vides an acquisition rise time of 
17.5 ps with typically 750 pV rms of 
noise (350 pV with smoothing) to 
ensure clean, undistorted signals. 

The SD-20 is nonterminated and keeps 
losses to a minimum by routing the sig- 
nal of interest directly through the sam- 
pling head without the need of a power 
divider. The SD-20 can also be used for 
customized TDR measurements of 
transmission lines and controlled 
impedance devices. An external signal 
generator may be used, instead of the 
SD-24 step generator, to tailor the TDR 
stimulus to fit a particular situation. For 
instance, slower slew rates or higher 
amplitude may be utilized, or you may 
perform half-sine or impulse testing. 

In digital communications, the SD-20 
is useful for viewing and triggering on 
the clock signal without the use of a 
power divider. 

SD-22 Low-noise Sampling 
Head 

The SD-22 is a dual-channel, 12.5 GHz 
sampling head specifically designed for 
low-noise measurement in digital com- 
munications and device characteriza- 
tion applications. It provides an acqui- 
sition rise time of 28 ps, and typically 
450 pV rms of displayed noise. With 
smoothing, noise levels are 180 pV rms. 

In order to precisely capture and dis- 
play the switching characteristics of 



high-speed communications circuits, to 
make accurate statistical measurements 
of signal noise and signal timing jitter, 
or to obtain stable timing measurements 
of fast digital ICs, the noise floor of the 
test equipment must be kept to a mini- 
mum. The SD-22 is the ideal instru- 
ment for these low-noise applications. 

SD -24 TDR/Sampling Head 

The SD-24 is a dual-channel 
TDR/Sampling Head. This sampling head 
has a rise time of 17.5 ps or less, with a 
typical 20 GHz equivalent bandwidth. 

Each channel of the SD-24 is also capa- 
ble of generating a fast rising step for 
use in Time Domain Reflectometry 
(TDR). In TDR mode, the acquisition 
portion of the sampling head monitors 
the incident step and any reflected 
energy. The reflected rise time of the 
TDR step is 35 ps or less. The polarity 
of each channel’s TDR step can be 
selected independently of the other 
channel. This allows for differential or 
common-mode testing of two coupled 
lines, in addition to the independent 
testing of isolated lines. The SD-24 can 
be used to characterize crosstalk by 
using the TDR step to drive one line 
while monitoring a second with the 
other channel. 

The “filter” function on the CSA 
803C/11801C can be used with TDR or 
crosstalk measurements to characterize 
a system at a slower rise time. 

SD -26 Sampling Head 

The SD-26 is a dual-channel, 20 GHz 
equivalent bandwidth sampling head. 
This sampling head has the same acqui-

sition capability as the SD-24 
TDR/Sampling Head but does not 
include the TDR step generators. 

SD -32 Sampling Head 

The SD-32 is a single-channel, 50 GHz 
bandwidth sampling head. The SD-32 
performance is available for any new or 
existing CSA 803A/11801B mainframe. 
The SD-32 has measured bandwidth of 
greater than 50 GHz and calculated rise 
time less than 7.0 ps. The front-panel 
connector is female 2.4 nun, and an 
adapter is provided (011-0157-00; 2.4 
mm male to 2.92 mm female) in order 
to maintain compatibility with SMA 
connector systems. 

SD-42 Optical-to-electrical 
Converter*’ 

The SD-42 Optical-to-electrical 
Gonverter head can be used to analyze 
optical signals in the 1000 nm to 
1700 nm wavelength range. The pulse 
response of the measurement system is 
less than 55 ps FWHM (Full-width, 
Half-maximum), which is equivalent to 
a calculated bandwidth of DC to 6.4 
GHz. The electrical output on the front 
panel is coupled to the adjacent sam- 
pling head via the semi-rigid coaxial 
link provided. 

The SD-42 is also equipped with an 
optical power meter for average power 
monitoring through a pair of voltage 
outputs on the front panel. Power from 
5 nW to 5 mW can be measured. 

SD-44 Optical-to-electrical 
Converter*’ 

The SD-44 is an optical-to-electrical 
(0/E) converter for use with the 
Tektronix CSA 803 and 11800 Series 
sampling oscilloscopes equipped 
with an SD-2x or SD-3x Electrical 
Sampling Head. The SD-44 Optical-to- 
electrical Converter can be plugged 
directly into a 11800 sampling slot, 
CSA 803 power slot, or attached via 
a sampling head extender cable for 
remote use. The head extenders 
come in either 1 meter (012-1220-00) 
or 2 meter (012-1221-00) options. 

Optical signal input on the SD-44 is a 
standard FC/PC fiber optic connector. 
Other connector types can be accommo- 
dated by using hybrid fiber optic 






jumper cables (SA/SD-42) or an assort- 
ment of hybrid mating adapters (SD-44). 

ORR-24 Optical Reference 
Receiver*’ 

The Synchronous Data Hierarchy (SDH) 
and the Synchronous Optical NETwork 
(SONET) standards are the cornerstones 
of today’s high-speed digital telecom- 
munications systems. The Tektronix 
ORR24 optical reference receiver pro- 
vides an important interface for compli- 
ance testing of SDH/SONET optical 
transmission products or components. 

The amplified design of the ORR24 con- 
verts the incoming optical light into a 
high gain, low noise electrical signal. 
This allows easy testing of optical 
designs as well as repeatable measure- 
ments. The ORR24 is DC coupled 
which is required for accurate extinc- 
tion ratio measurements. 

SD-51 Trigger Head 

The SD-51 Trigger-countdown Head pro- 
vides stable displays of signals from 1 to 
20 GHz with less than 6 ps rms jitter. 

The SD-51 is a free-rimning tunnel 
diode oscillator with a front-panel con- 
trol to synchronize the oscillator to a 
subharmonic of the input signal and the 
output oscillator to a subharmonic of 
the input signal. The output from the 
SD-51 is coupled to the CSA 
803C/11801C Series trigger input con- 
nector. The output signal is a direct 
countdown of the input (and the input 
connector) and permits triggering by the 
sampling time base unit.

DL-11 Delay Line 

The DL-11 Delay Line provides approximately 

47.5 ns of delay from the signal input to the sig- 
nal output. The DL-11 contains two delay lines 
that, when connected, allow you to view the 
triggering event through the 11801C or CSA 
803C. The DL-11 has approximately 5 GHz band- 
width and attenuates the signal by 50%. 

A delay line can reduce horizontal jitter and pro- 
vide more accurate measurements, because it 
lets you take measurements on the first rising 
edge of the triggering event. 

The DL-11 Delay Line contains two delay lines 
each with 47.5 ns delay. The DL-11 is used for 
showing the triggering event of a signal dis- 
played on an 11801C or a CSA 803C.

Calibration Step Generator 

The Calibration Step Generator is a very fast rise 
time, 250 mV step generator that verifies specifi- 
cations of the SD-14, SD-20, SD-22, SD-24, and 
SD-26 sampling heads. It is supplied with a cer- 
tificate and test report, stating the rise time of the 
step based on a measurement-controlled, internal 
Tektronix acquisition standard, to a tolerance of 

2.5 ps typically. This reported rise time will not 
exceed 19.5 ps. The output connector is a preci- 
sion 3.5 mm male that allows direct interface to 
the SD-Series head. The step generator is triggered 
directly from the Internal Clock Output on a CSA 
803C/118()1C Series mainframe. 

SlU 8oo Static Isolation Unit 

The SIU 800 protects the sampling bridge from 
damage due to static discharge from circuit 
boards and cables. The SIU 800 is intended for 
use in applications such as TDR circuit board 
testing and cable testing where large static 
charges can be stored. When used with the SD- 
24 TDR/Sampling Head, the SIU 800 provides a 
reflected rise time of less than 40 ps and a reflec- 
tion coefficient of less than 80 millirho.

Delay Line/Static Isolation Unit/Calibration Step Generator 

DL-11 *SIU 800 



The SIU 800 is installed between the 
DUT and sampling head and is con- 
trolled manually by a foot switch or 
under program control through a TTL- 
compatible input. When the foot switch 
is in the normal position (not pressed), 
the DUT is grounded through a 50 Q 
termination resistor. This will discharge 
any static charge stored in the DUT. 



Pressing the foot switch connects the 
DUT to the sampling head input, allow- 
ing a measurement to be made. Both 
channels are controlled simultaneously 
by the foot switch or TTL input.

TLS 216 Logic Scope 

The TLS 216 Logic Scope is a new class of instru- 
ment designed to simplify the task of debugging 
digital hardware. The Logic Scope seamlessly com- 
bines in a single instrument the analog acquisition 
system of a high-speed digital storage oscilloscope 
(DSO) with the triggering and display systems of a 
logic analyzer. The 500 MHz bandwidth Logic 
Scope samples all channels simultaneously at 2 
GS/s and has sophisticated time-qualified trigger- 
ing, a high resolution color display, and an integrat- 
ed MS-DOS compatible 3.5 inch floppy disk drive. 



Sophisticated Triggering to 
Identify Complex Digital Problems 

In addition to edge trigger, most digital signals 
can be easily captured using pulse, glitch and 
pattern triggers. The Logic Scope provides two 
new trigger resources that allow the instrument 
to directly trigger on common digital circuit 
behavior. The industry’s first time-interval or 
sequence trigger type monitors the time between 
two events, allowing the instrument to easily 
trigger on setup time violations, hold-time viola- 
tions, or unexpected propagation delay. The

Scope’s external trigger-input can be used 
as a “Trigger Arm” to enhance cross-trig- 
gering between two instruments, simph- 
fying the task of using a Logic Scope with 
other test equipment. 

2.5 pF, Low-Mass FET Probes 
Ensure Nonintrusive 
Connection 

The Logic Scope includes a set of 16 
specially designed probes that have 
extremely low probe-tip mass (1.5 
grams) and input capacitance (2.5 pF). 
The P6240 low prohe-tip mass ensures 
that connections made to surface mount 
and fine pitch ICs will be reliable. The 
low input capacitance, combined with 
the 1 MO input resistance, decreases 
the effect of the probe on the DUT’s 
operation, allowing very accurate meas- 
urements to be made with confidence. 

These characteristics are made possible 
by using a “podlet-style” probe-tip 
design instead of the “pencil-style” 
design of traditional oscilloscope 
probes. Employing the de facto industry 
standard of 0.1 inch spacing between 
the signal and ground inputs, each 0.1 
inch thick podlet can directly attach to 
the hundreds of readily available 1C 
adapters and clips.

to improve efficiency when troubleshooting digi- 
tal hardware. Twenty-eight on-board measure- 
ments, including setup time, hold time and skew,

Whereas traditional DSOs confine waveform 
measurements to establishing the relationship of 
a single channel to a clock, the Logic Scope simul- 
taneously samples on all channels, so you can 
see the relationships between multiple channels.

TLA 700 SERIES LOGIC ANALYZER MODULES 

The TLA 700 Series includes a wdde selection of 
logic analyzer modules with measurement capa- 
bilities not seen in logic analyzers before. 

MAGNIVU ACQUISITION TECHNOLOGY - 
A BREAKTHROUGH FOR LOGIC ANALYZERS 

At the heart of all of the TLA 700 Series logic 
analyzer modules is a breakthrough called MagniVu 



acquisition technology. MagniVu acquisition tech- 
nology is a super-high-speed sampling architecture 
that dramatically changes the way logic analyzers 
work and what functionality they offer. 

All incoming data is oversampled at a 2 GHz 
rate, regardless of how the logic analyzer is 
being used. The oversampled data is then 
processed in real time to perform timing acquisi- 
tion, state acquisition, and triggering without 
missing the slightest piece of crucial timing 
information on any channel. 

MagniVu Acquisition technology makes it possi- 
ble to offer the following measurement capabili- 
ties that logic analyzer users have long needed: 

500 ps Timing Resolution on All Channels. By 
Storing timing information in MagniVu acquisi- 
tion technology’s high-speed memory at the full 
2 GHz rate, all TLA 700 Series logic analyzers 
are able to offer 500 ps timing resolution on all 
channels, all the time. 

Up to 200 MHz State Acquisition. TLA 700 
Series modules offer standard configurations 
with state acquisition up to 100 MHz for com- 
mon applications and optional 200 MHz configu- 
rations for leading-edge applications.

TLA 700 SERIES 




TLA 720 - Both the portable TLA 714 and the 
benchtop TLA 720 combine impressive per- 
formance and a modem graphical user inter- 
face to simplify debugging complex system 
problems and enable engineering teams to 
meet or exceed their development schedules. 




From right: The 34-CH, 68-CH, 102-CH, and 
136-CH Logic Analyzer modules; available 
with depths up to 16 Mbits per channel with 
your choice of probes. A TLA 720 benchtop 
mainframe can hold up to five modules for a 
total system of 680 channels. 

Since all clocks and data are oversam- 
pled at a 2 GHz rate and processed in 
real time to provide 200 MHz synchro- 
nous acquisition, each data sample is 
timestamped with 500 ps resolution. 

User-selectable Setup-and-hold 
Window. Because TLA 700 Series logic 
analyzers always oversample incoming 
data at a 2 GHz rate, they are able to 
provide unmatched state acquisition 
capabilities as well. The combined 
setup-and-hold time window required 
across up to 136 channels is typically 
only 2.0 ns and can be placed anywhere 
from 8.5 ns before the selected clock 




The graphical user interface can display an 
almost unlimited number of data windows. 
In the above disassembly window, proper- 
ties such as column width or text size and 
color can be easily changed by the user. 

Note the timestamp with 500 picosecond 
resolution. 

edge to 7.0 ns after the clock edge, in 
500 ps increments. 

If your design involves sections of cir- 
cuitry with different timing require- 
ments or even mixed logic families, 
that’s no problem for the TLA 700 
Series; you can set different setup-and- 
hold time characteristics and unique 
threshold settings for different groups 
of channels. 

Simultaneous State and Timing 
Analysis Through the Same 
Probes. The logic analyzer modules are 
able to provide both timing analysis 
and state acquisition simultaneously. 
They provide 500 ps timing AND up to 
200 MHz state acquisition at the same 
time, through the same probes. 

You no longer have to hook up a sec- 
ond set of probes and timing modules 
to a bus you’re already acquiring state 
data from. No more running out of tim- 
ing channels because you didn’t have 
enough modules or couldn’t fit them 
into your mainframe. No tradeoffs of 
channels or important features to get 
the results you need. 

Precision Triggering on Setup-and-hold 
Violations and Glitches. Each logic ana- 
lyzer module has the ability to trigger 
on very precise timing problems. 
Whether timing problems are suspect, 
or things seem to be working and you 
need to test for design margins, tlie TLA 
700 Series triggering does what no 
other logic analyzer can. 

The TLA 700 Series can trigger on 
setup-and-hold time violations on any 




Using the Magnitude Mode feature in the 
Waveform Window, you can view the value 
of your acquired data versus time. This is 
particularly useful for A/D and D/A applica- 
tions, such as viewing the RGB components 
of a digitized video signal. 

or all groups of channels with 500 ps 
resolution. You can select different tim- 
ing limits for different groups and even 
verify propagation delay from clock-to- 
output of synchronous circuits. 

Not even glitches can escape the watch- 
ful eye of the TLA 700 Series; because 
the glitch detection logic is processing 
the same oversampled data. ANY set of 
two or more transitions between sample 
points on any channel is captured and 
can be used for glitch triggering. 

What-You-See-Is-What-You-Triggered- 
On! The greatest benefit that oversam- 
pling brings to triggering is that the pre- 
cise timing of whatever condition you 
trigger on is fidly visible with MagniVu 
technology. This means that when you 
trigger on a setup-and-hold time viola- 
tion on a 64-Bit data bus, you can 
immediately view all 64 channels to see 
exactly which signals caused the viola- 
tion and how far those signals were 
beyond the limits you specified. 

WORLD-CLASS DSO MODULES 

The TLA 700 Series offers a range of 
DSO modules that provide the acquisi- 
tion capabilities of the world’s best 
DSOs, tightly integrated with the TLA 
700 logic analyzers. 

Tektronix wrote the book on oscillo- 
scopes and Digital Real-Time^'’ (DRT) 
technology, which brings the band- 
width of leading analog oscilloscopes to 
single-shot digital applications. The 
2- and 4-channel DSO modules avail- 
able in the TLA 700 Series offer sample

rates of up to 5 GS/s and bandwidths of 
up to 1 GHz, with 15 K record length, 
on all channels at all times. 

The DSO modules offer precise time 
correlation and flexible cross-triggering 
with the other installed modules. This 
enables you to see the quality of critical 
signals alongside the digital behavior 
they affect.

Violation, Edge, and Timeout. All trigger 
modes can be fully time-qualified for 
any period from 2 ns to 1 s and are easi- 
ly set up with a graphical user interface. 

SOURCE CODE SUPPORT 

The HLL Source Code Support post- 
processes real-time trace data acquired 
from processors and buses and auto- 
matically correlates it with your high- 
level language source code. It uses the 
information provided in the object file 
from your compiler to build a data- 
base of source files, line numbers and 
symbolic information. 

Every time you acquire real-time data 
with yoiu* logic analyzer, you can view 
the acquired data disassembled in the 
Listing Window, which shows how 
your code was executed in native

code level in the Source Window, 
which shows your code as written in 
the high level language you use. You 
can ‘step’ forward or backward through 
your source code and view the underly- 
ing assembly code or vice versa, using 
the global cursors. All lines in the 
Listing Window are highlighted that 
correspond to a particular line of source 
code in the Source Window, rather than 
using just the cursor as the indicator. 
Multi-processor and bus systems are 
supported via multiple Source and 
Listing Windows, all automatically 
time-correlated. 

The HLL Source Code Support is a non- 
intrusive tool that does not require you 
to instrument your source code. It is a 
universal tool that supports any high- 
level language whose software tools 
produce supported object file formats. 
No modifications or recompilation of 
your source code is required.

► Counter: Select a Counter, setup the 
count intervals either linearly or log- 
arithmically and press Run to moni- 
tor the varying number of counts 
over multiple acquisition. 

► Timer: Select a timer, setup the time 
intervals either linearly or logarith- 
mically and press Run to monitor

REPETITIVE ACQUISITION WITH 
MEMORY COMPARISON 

Repetitive Acquisition allows the TLA 
700 to repeatedly acquire data from 
your target system and perform a vari- 
ety of operations depending upon the 
comparison results. At each iteration, 
you can either save the results and 
restart or stop and send a command to 
the Windows 98 operating system that 
could send email or page you. Then, 
you can save the results, concatenate to 
a single file or specify that each new 
file has the filename autoincremented. 

Repetitive Acquisition with Memory 
Comparison compares the results of two 
independent LA acquisitions and high- 
lights the differences in either Listing 
or Waveform Windows. You can specify 
the range of samples over which to 
make the comparison or specify the off- 
set between the two acquisition memo- 
ries. You can also mask or prevent 
channels from being compared.

Extensive remote control command set 
based upon Microsoft COM/DCOM technolo- 
gy interfaces seamlessly with advanced 
Windows applications such as Excel or 
Visual Basic to provide advanced data 
analysis. Quickly develop powerful data 
analysis capabilities using the TLA 700 as a 
high-performance data acquisition device, 
either directly on the TLA 700 or over the 
network on a remote computer. 



Now you can setup your TLA 700 to 
continuously monitor your target sys- 
tem, thereby freeing you up for other 
tasks and notifying you only when 
there’s an anomaly. 

REMOTE CONTROL WITH SUPPORT 
FOR ADVANCED DATA ANALYSIS 

Although remote control has been a stan- 
dard feature in logic analyzers, the TLA 
700, being based upon an open, embed- 
ded PC running Microsoft Windows 98, 
provides a new capability that is a first 
for logic analyzers. Using the Microsoft 
Windows Component Object Model 
(COM/DCOM) technology, the TLA 700 
Programmatic Interface (TPI) provides 
the next-generation technology for LA 
remote control. The TPI provides a mod- 
ern ‘function call’ interface that is com- 
patible with COM/DCOM programmatic 
interfaces of other Windows applications. 

Support for non-Windows platforms 
(e.g., UNIX) is available via Distributed 
COM (DCOM) from 3rd parties. 

Now with the TPI, you can spend less 
time trying to build advanced data 
analysis from scratch and instead use 
existing Windows applications such as 
Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Visual 
Basic or C-h-i- to build an advanced data 
analysis application that seamlessly 



integrates with the TLA 700. You can 
then run your application directly on the 
TLA 700 or from a computer connected 
over a LAN connected to your TLA 700. 

MAINFRAMES THAT ESTABLISH A 
PLATFORM FOR THE FUTURE 

The TLA 700 Series mainframes offer a 
new paradigm for test instrumentation. 
Instead of building a proprietary com- 
pute engine into an instrument, 
Tektronix uses an industry-standard 
computer and operating system. You 
can install industry leading software 
debuggers and run control on the 
TLA 700 series to download and run 
code on your target. 

Both the portable TLA 714 and the 
benchtop TLA 720 use Microsoft 
Windows 98. That means that you don’t 
have to spend time learning how to 
navigate the user-interface because it 
works just like other PC-based software 
you’ve used. Because Windows 98 is 
fully integrated and embedded when 
you open the box, you get the benefit of 
a familiar environment without having 
to set things up yourself. This allows 
you to concentrate on the problem 
you’re solving rather than the tool 
you’re using. 

You also don’t have to worry about how 
to integrate the TLA 700 into your test 
environment. Any accessories you can 
buy that connect a portable PC into your 
environment can be used directly on 
TLA 700 Series mainframes. Standard 
USB, PS2 mouse & keyboard, serial, par- 
allel, SVGA, and PC Card, (Card Bus 32) 
interfaces are used for external acces- 
sories. The TLA 700 Series comes stan- 
dard with a 3.5 in. floppy, CD-ROM and 
removeable hard drive. 

THE TPI SUPPORTS THE FOLLOWING 
REMOTE OPERATIONS: 

System: Configuration, Load/Save, Run 

Control, Stat^^^^^ 

LA Module: Load/Save, Trigger Setup, 

Acquisition Data & Parameters 

DSO Module: Load/Save, Acquisition 

Data & Paramet ers 

All modules, software, and accessories 
are fully interchangeable between 
portable and benchtop mainframes.

Spectrum Analyzers 



Spectrum Analyzers 

INTRODUaiON 

Tektronix offers a broad range of spectrum analyzers. The selection ranges from 
high performance, high throughput models for communications test to lightweight, 
battery powered units suited for field use. 

EXTENSIVE PRODUCTS FOR COMMUNICATIONS TEST 

Testing mobile communications systems presents many unique challenges. 
Tektronix has products designed for meeting the specific measurement require- 
ments of CMDA, GSM, IS-136 and AMPS along with the emerging next generation 
(3G) systems. In addition to spectral analysis, powerful code domain and modula- 
tion domain analysis options are available on several models. 

REAL TIME SPECTRUM ANALYZERS OFFER NEW MEASUREMENT CAPABILITIES 

Tektronix’ new range of real time spectrum analyzers provide new data capture and 
analysis capabilities. The DSP/FFT based architecture acquires RF data in parallel 
instead of sweeping. The benefits of real time spectrum analysis include: 

► Acquiring seamless blocks of RF data for immediate or post-analysis 

► RF event triggering for capturing elusive events 

► Modulation and code domain analysis (3066 and 3086 only)

The 3066 aiid 3086 are DC to 3 GHz real-time 
spectrum analyzers that allow the seamless cap- 
ture of frequency spectra with spans up to 30 MHz 
(5 MHz - 3066). This allows the spectrum of burst 
signals, such as those from GSM, lS-136, PDC or 
partial rate CDMA mobile stations, to be easily 
captured and examined. Real-time spectrum 
analyzers take a whole different approach com- 
pared to traditional sweeping spectriun analyzers. 
Rather than acquiring one frequency step at a 
time, the real-time instrument captures a block of 
frequencies all at once. Because the instrument 
.samples these frdl frames constantly (rather than 
waiting for each discrete frequency step to be 
measured), the signal can come or go as it pleases 
and the real-time spectrum analyzer v^ll detect 
the change instantly. 

The 12.1 in. color TFT display allows easy view- 
ing of spectrum, waterfall displays, spectrograms 
and digital modulation analysis screens. 
Constellation and vector diagrams can be dis- 
played as well as frequency, phase, magnitude, 

1 and Q versus time for in-depth analysis of digi- 
tally modulated signals. Users can move a marker 
through the time record and analyze the modula- 



tion at any point. In particular, signals with 
symbol rates up to 20.48 Msymbols/sec (3066 - 
5.3 Msymbols/sec) may be analyzed during and 
after capture. This facilitates analysis of W-CDMA 
signals with chip rates up to 16.384 Mcps. 

In addition, a frequency mask trigger allows the 
capture of randomly occurring or infrequent sig- 
nals such as intermittent spurious emissions. If 
the user is not interested in the period between 
transmission bursts, the frequency mask trigger 
allows capture of the “burst-on” periods, thus 
maximizing the number of bursts that can be cap- 
tured in memory for subsequent spectral, time or 
modulation analysis. The user can graphically 
define the frequency trigger mask; this allows the 
trigger condition to be generated by a particular 
event in the frequency domain irrespective of 
other activity within the displayed span. This is 
a major benefit when the trigger condition is used 
to capture signals arising from intermittent spuri- 
ous or spectral re-growth events. 

A 1000:1 zoom capability permits analysis to be 
performed on an individual signal in a multi- 
signal environment.

The new 3026 real-time Spectrum Analyzer pro- 
vides design engineers and manufacturing final 
test evaluators of communications equipment an 
affordable product that can be used to quickly 
evaluate a design or the final product for tran- 
sient (Burst) phenomena that otherwise might 
not show up until it is in the end user’s hands. 

The 3026 offers a full 2 MHz of real-time band- 
width with measurement speed of 25,000 
frames/second and a 1024 point update interval 
of 160 microseconds. The captured events can be 
conveniently displayed in a variety of formats 
selectable by the user: Spectrum, Spectrogram 
and Waterfall. The analyzer architecture makes it 
possible to capture time domain data and fre- 
quency domain data simultaneously. 

To catch instantaneous phenomenon like a trans- 
mitter startup, or the beginning of a digital 
TDMA or CDMA transmission, the 3026 pro- 
vides frequency domain and time domain real- 
time triggering with a mask pattern that is easily 
edited in the built-in editor. 



Application Examples 

DIGITAL CELLULAR/PCS DESIGN, TEST AND 
MANUFACTURE 

Current spectrum analyzers do not do a very 
good job of analyzing burst or intermittent sig- 
nals. They sweep over a band of frequencies and 
are therefore not able to capture simultaneously 
the spectrum over a band of frequencies. This 
makes it difficult, or sometimes impossible, for a 
developer to identify problems, such as phase 
jumps, which will adversely affect a digitally 
modulated system. 

Transient noise burst problems that are often 
associated with high frequency solid state com- 
munications equipment can be captured with a 
measurement speed of 25,000 frames/second and 
a 1024 point update interval of 160 microsec- 
onds reducing intermittent problem test time.

mission in both the forward and return 
paths. This interference is often impul- 
sive in nature and very difficult to cap- 
ture with a conventional spectrum ana- 
lyzer. The 3026 with its real-time cap- 
ture capability allows rapid detection 
and analysis of such interference. 

In the screen photo (1) (lower section 
of photo) below an interfering burst 
4.8 MHz above the spectrum center is 
captured for analysis. In tlie upper 
spectrogram section the amplitude vs. 
frequency of the complete spectrum is 
displayed as a function of time (vertical 
axis). In the Spectrogram display, each 
line of pixels represents a frame, with the 
most recent frame displayed at tlie bottom. 

TRANSITIONAL SIGNAL ANALYSIS 

Bursting signals such as TDMA employ 
Phase Locked Loops (PLL) for frequen- 
cy stability, a critical measiuement of 
interest is the frequency change as the 
transmitter is keyed on and ofl. 

The 3026 can capture tliis transition in 
time, frequency and phase as shown in 
this screen capture. 

In the lower portion of the photo (2), 
we can see the change in Frequency 
vs. Time (spectrogram) and in the 
upper portion of the display we can 
see the phase change during transmit- 
ter activation. From this example, we 
find this transceiver makes a signifi- 
cant frequency, amplitude and phase 
shift until it stabilizes.

FSIQ - THE One Box Solution in 
Signal Analysis 

FSIQ provides in a single unit comprehensive 
and easy-to-use measurement functions in the 

► Frequency domain 

► Time domain 

► Modulation domain 



FREQUENCY DOMAIN 

In the frequency domain, FSIQ measures inter- 
modulation and harmonics with great accuracy. 
The high 3rd-order intercept point in conjunc- 
tion with the extremely low noise floor yields an 
intermodulation-free dynamic range of >110 dB 
and ensures reliable performance of even sophis- 
ticated measurements.

Signal Analyzer 

NEW FSIQ 



The excellent dynamic range and the 
optimized phase noise values make the 
FSIQ an ideal tool for ACPR (Adjacent 
Channel Povy^er Ratio) measurements in 
all mobile radio systems and in particu- 
lar for W-CDMA. The maximum ACPR 
value for W-CDMA in 4.096 MHz band- 
width is 75 dB, attained at -12 dBm 
input level. 

The RMS detector available for all 
band widths up to 10 MHz is the ideal 
tool for precise power measurements 
whatever the waveform. Channel power 
and adjacent-channel power can accu- 
rately be measured and displayed irre- 
spective of any signal statistics. Typical 
measurement problems such as the high 
and uncertain crest factor in CDMA sys- 
tems can thus be eliminated and the 
true RMS value displayed. 

TIME DOMAIN 

In the time domain, FSIQ features all 
modern capabilities of burst analysis in 
TDM A systems; gate functions, trigger 
delay and integrated RF trigger in con- 
junction with a short sweep time of 
1 ps ensure precise measurement of the 
timing characteristics of all main 
mobile radio systems. 

Thanks to the wide range of bandwidths 
available up to 10 MHz the effect of the 
measuring instrument becomes negligi- 
ble, particularly in the case of measure- 
ments on broadband systems. 

Various marker functions in conjunction 
with editable gated sweeps allow RMS, 
average and peak measurements to be 
carried out over any selectable time. 

MODULATION DOMAIN 

In the modulation domain, the integrat- 
ed vector signal analyzer provides 
diverse measiuements on signals with 
digital or analog modulation. The vari- 
ety of settings that can be called simply 
at a keystroke covers 18 mobile radio 
standards from GSM, NADC, IS95 
through to W-CDMA. These convenient 
presets make it superfluous for the user 
to spend valuable time in looking up 
specifications and go towards enhanc- 
ing the measurement reliability. 

Display of the results caters to practi- 
cally each and every need: in addition 
to vector and constellation diagrams, 

I/Q signal and eye/trellis diagrams, 



tables with modulation errors including 
the demodulated bit sequence are par- 
ticularly useful. EVM (error vector mag- 
nitude), phase and frequency error, 
waveform factor and I/Q offset are out- 
put as numeric values, with RMS and 
peak value being shown separately. 

Besides the mobile radio standards, 

FSIQ can also be used as a general pur- 
pose measurement demodulator for non- 
standard modulation methods. The list 
of the 14 digital demodulators available 
ranges from BPSK, QPSK and (G)MSK 
through to 16QAM. Witli a symbol rate 
selectable up to 6.4 Msymbol/s and 
cosine and root-cosine filters adjustable 
in 0.01 step width, configuration of cus- 
tomized systems is no problem. 

The analog demodulators using digital 
technique throughout feature long term 
and temperature-independent measure- 
ments, e.g., of transmitter transients, or 
convenient measurement of incidental 
phase modulation (AM to phiM conver- 
sion) e.g., on traveling wave tubes. 

HIGH MEASUREMENT SPEED 
FOR USE IN DEVELOPMENT 
AND PRODUCTION 

► The minimum sweep time for FULL 
SPAN is 5 ms (FSIQ3/7). The sweep 
is synthesizer-controlled for all fre- 
quency settings, thus providing con- 
siderably higher accuracy of the dis- 
played spectra than comparable 
spectrum analyzers 




Rear View of FSIQ. 



► The shortest sweep time in ZERO 
SPAN mode is 100 ns/div and ideal 
for high-resolution time measure- 
ments on burst edges 

► Up to 25 sweeps/s is an optimal 
prerequisite for applications in 
production or fast alignments with 
“analog feeling” 

► High throughput on GPIB bus saves 
time and costs in production

capabilities of high-end RF or microwave spec- 
trum analysis with those of universal digital- 
signal demodulation and analysis. This becomes 
possible with the vector signal analyzer option. 
The spectrum analyzer function offers the wide 
dynamic range necessary for many measiue- 
ments on digitally modulated signals (e.g., burst 
measurements), and the vector signal analyzer 
option adds demodulation capability to bit 
stream level for: 

► BPSK 

► piMDQPSK 

► GMSK 



► QPSK 

► 16 QAM 

► (G)FSK

MODULARITY SAFEGUARDS 
INVESTMENTS 

Series FSE analyzers are of modular 
design throughout. From the wide variety 
of options, you can choose exactly those 
needed for your particular application. 

You thus get an instrument tailor-made 
to your requirements and pay for no 
more tlian what you actually need. At 
the same time, you can feel sure that 
FSE will grow with yoiu tasks and 
requirements as most options can be 
retrofitted and model .20 units can easi- 
ly be upgraded later to almost the same 
performance as provided by top-class 
models .30. Even extending the frequen- 
cy range from 3.5 GHz to 7 GHz is no 
problem with Opt. FSE-B2. 

Your decision for Spectrum Analyzer 
FSE is a decision for a safe investment.

A TRIPLE RECORD HOLDER IN SPEED 

FSE breaks the speed record in three 
fields: 

► FSE features a minimum full-span 
sweep time of 5 ms (for FSEA and 
FSEB) with a fully synchronized 
sweep. This means that added speed 
is not at the expense of frequency 
accuracy but even enhances it 

► The shortest zero-span sweep time 
is 1 ps (100 ns/div) - ideal for high- 
resolution measurements on pulse 
edges 

► Up to 25 sweeps per second is an 
optimal prerequisite for rapid and 
easy alignments and for applications 
in production 

With its high measurement speed and 
great ease of operation. FSE will solve 
even highly complex measurement 
tasks in the shortest possible time. 



TOP DYNAMIC RANGE 

FSE is outstanding for its extremely low 
noise floor without any impairment to 
the dynamic range at large signal levels. 
This can be seen, for example, from the 
1-dB compression point of +10 dBm. 
which yields a dynamic range of 
109 dB even at a resolution bandwidth 
of 1 MHz, allowing GSM and DECT 
power ramps to be determined. 

The extremely wide intermodulation- 
free d\Tiamic range of typically 116 dB 
(FSEA30. FSEB30) and 105 dB (FSEB20, 
FSEB20) not only ensures reliable meas- 
tnements on highly linear amplifiers, it 
also enables detailed analysis of com- 
plex broadband signals. 

Taking as a figure of merit of an analyz- 
er the difference between its 3rd-order 
intercept point and its noise figure, 
FSEA can offer a value of around 0 dB.

range through to 26.5/40 GHz and 
retain the excellent characteristics of 
the 3.5 and 7 GHz basic models: 

► Continuous full-span sweep 

► Fundamental mixing, low noise floor 
as well as wide dynamic range up to 
26.5 GHz 

► Fully synchronized sweep with high 
frequency accuracy even for FULL 
SPAN (26.5/40 GHz) 

► RF input adapters for N or 
PC 3.5 mm, or with FSEK K 
male/female connector 

FSEM/FSEK with Opt. FSE-B21 allow 
frequency range extension by means of 
external mixers. Continuous automatic 
signal identification, which is used to 
suppress unwanted image frequency 
bands and mixture products, ensures 
fast and easy measurements. Due to the 
built-in diplexer, three-port as well as 
two-port mixers can be used. 

The external mixer measurement func- 
tion features great ease of operation: 

► Definition of frequency range and 
harmonics by selection of a wave- 
guide band 

► Definition of all important parame- 
ters for each waveguide band 
separately 

► Frequency-dependent consideration 
of mixer conversion loss 

► Storage of parameters on hard disk

► Quasi-analog display 

FREQUENCY ACCURACY - 
TO-TH E-POINT 

Tuning an FSE is absolutely synchro- 
nous to the reference frequency for each 
span including full span. This means 
that every point on the frequency axis 
is determined with the accuracy of the 
internal reference frequency and the 
pixel resolution. Thus, when reducing 
the span for detailed signal analysis, 
readjustment of the center frequency is 
no longer needed. 

FSE in its basic configuration, includes 
an AM/FM demodulator. Unknown sig- 
nals can easily be identified via head- 
phones or the built-in loudspeaker. 
Modulation measurements are possible 
using the optional Vector Signal 
Analyzer (Opt. B7). 

Limit lines facilitate checking if results 
are within predefined tolerances. 
Virtually any number of limit lines can 
be defined with high accuracy by 
means of 50 points to meet even the 
most exacting requirements. 

Scalar Network Analysis 

The optional tracking generators are an 
ideal tool for determining frequency 
response, attenuation or VSWR and 
feature the following characteristics: 

► Wide dynamic range for attenuation 
measurements (up to 120 dB) 

► Frequency range from 
9 kHz to 3.5/7 GHz 

► Frequency offset up to ±200 MHz for 
measurements on frequency- 
converting modules 




Dynamic range, noise and 1 dB compression

point. 



To generate digitally modulated signals 
the tracking generators with built-in I/Q 
modulator are ideal. An external two- 
channel Arbitrary Waveform Generator 
(e.g., AMIQ from Rohde&Schwarz) 
serves as the modulation source. 

By adding the optional Vector Signal 
Analyzer FSE-B7, FSE can be expanded 
to a test assembly enabling direct meas- 
urement of the influence of amplifiers 
or filters on phase error for instance. 

OPERATION - AS YOU LIKE IT 

Despite their comprehensive functional- 
ities the analyzers feature great ease of 
operation. Basic functions and frequent- 
ly used help tools such as markers can 
be called at a keystroke. The full operat- 
ing convenience based on a wide variety 
of evaluation routines and marker func- 
tions can be accessed via the menus. 

All essential parameters and results can 
be seen at a glance. All test data, scale 
factors and setting parameters are logi- 
cally arranged and thus easy to find. 
Setups, traces and graticules displayed 
in color make for error-free analysis of 
complex results.

TEST RESULTS - PERFECTLY 
DOCUMENTED 

FSE affords uncomplicated logging of 
results. It supports a variety of printers 
and plotters. 

► FX-80 and compatibles 

► Printers with HP-PCL 

► HP-GL 

► Postscript 

Print files can not only be output via an 
interface but also be stored on diskette 
or the internal hard disk. With PCX, 
WMF and HP-GL print formats being 
available, there is no problem in further 
processing print files in standard text 
processing systems. Using Controller 
FSE-B15, it is particularly easy to gen- 
erate test reports and integrate the 
results. Texts can then be processed 
under Windows on FSE itself. 

FSE WORKS AS A CONTROLLER 

The optional Controller FSEB15 pro- 
vides an additional VGA card, 16 MB 
memory extension, serial mouse and a 
keyboard. FSEB15 is available in 
English and German and is supplied 
installed in FSE when ordered together 
with the unit. The option opens up the 
world of Windows 3.1 applications 
(standard mode) such as statistics pro- 
grams or spreadsheet analysis. FSE can 
even be linked to a network using the 
optional Ethernet Interface FSEB16. 



Complete setups, traces, limit lines and 
macros can be stored nonvolatile on the 
internal hard disk or on diskette with 
the built-in 1.44 Mbyte drive. 

FSE IN AUTOMATIC TEST SYSTEMS 

FSE is ideal for use in automatic test 
systems, affording not only fast process- 
ing of results and an lEC/lEEE-bus com- 
mand set conforming to SCPl. 

Moreover, the optional controller 
FSEB15 and a second lEC/IEEE-bus 
card (Opt. FSEB17), FSE can be used as 
a controller for test systems, thus elimi- 
nating the need for additional units and 
saving space in the system cabinet. 

MODULAR DESIGN - EASY 
RETROFITTING OF OPTIONS 

The easy concept for fitting the most 
important options, i.e.. Vector Signal 
Analyzer, Low Phase Noise and OCXO, 
7-GHz Frequency Extension, as well as 
the easy, adjustment-free incorporation 
of the remaining options make it possi- 
ble to retrofit the instrument with a 
minimum of downtime or installation 
costs being involved. 

NOISE MEASUREMENT 
SOFTWARE FS-K3 

FS-K3 turns your FSE into a noise 
measurement system offering the 
advantages of an analyzer (see also data 
sheet 757.2380): 

► From the large number of resolution 
bandwidths available, you can 
choose the right one for your appli- 
cation. even for measurements on 
narrowband DUTs 

► With ambiguous results, you can 
check your test system for EM pick- 
up or nonharmonics 

► The lower frequency limit is 100 kHz 

► Measurements on frequency-convert- 
ing DUTs are supported with the use 
of an external generator 

PHASE NOISE MEASUREMENTS 
WITH FSE-K4 

Phase Noise Measurement Software FSE- 
K4 extends the measurement capabilities 
of Rohde&Schwarz Spectrum Analyzer 
FSE phase noise testing. FSE is ideal for 
this purpose because of its low inherent 
phase noise and noise figure. 




1) TWo-tone measurements. 




2) Harmonics with split screen. 




3) Fundamental mixing to 26 GHz. 

High measurement speed is achieved 
through the high .sweep rates of FSE. It 
is possible to trade off speed again.st 
accuracy at small resolution band- 
widths (<1 kHz) by using either FFT or 
digital filters. FSE-K4 allows for differ- 
ent settings in one phase noise graph, 
e.g., FFT close and analog/digital filters 
far off the carrier. 

The software FSE-K4 runs under 
Microsoft Windows on FSE with con- 
troller function FSE-B15 fitted or on an 
external PC with GPIB controller.

TV SIGNAL IN ZERO SPAN AND 
TV TRIGGER 

With a maximum resolution bandwidth 
of 10 MHz, implemented with the 
optional TV Demodulator FSE-B3, and 
the high resolution of 100 ns/div, FSE 
meets all requirements for the analysis 
of TV signals. In addition, FSE-B3 pro- 
vides the following functions: 

► Frame trigger 

► Line trigger with selection of line 

► CCVS output for connecting a moni- 
tor, adaptable to all standards 

Moreover, the quasi-analog display pro- 
vides luminance-signal information, 
enabling the detection of intermodula- 
tion products in the TV spectrum. 

Applications: 

RF POWER TRIGGER REPLACES 
EXTERNAL TRIGGER 

An internal broadband level detector 
(center frequency ±50 MHz) with a 
fixed switching threshold of approxi- 
mately -20 dBm at the first mixer is 
used as a trigger source. With this 
detector it is possible, for example, to 
perform “Spectrum due to switching’* 
and “Spectrum due to modulation” 
measurements to GSM specifications 
without an external trigger. Likewise, 
the detector replaces the external trigger 
needed in the gated sweep mode.

make it possible to measure the rise and 
fall times of an RF pulse simultaneously 
and with high time resolution. The cen- 
ter of the pulse, which is of no interest, 
is blanked. Even at a resolution band- 
width of 1 MHz. FSE offers a dynamic 
range of over 80 dB thanks to the high 
1-dB compression point of +10 dBm. 

GATED SWEEP 

The gated sweep function is indispensa- 
ble for analyzing TDMA signals used in 
modern commimication systems. With 
this function, the spectrum of burst sig- 
nals can be investigated without any 
interference being caused by switching 
the signals on and off. The selected gate 
time determines over what interval a 
pulse is to be analyzed. Selection of the 
gate time is very easy and convenient in 
the time domain display (zero span) of 
the pulse. 

UNIVERSAL ANALYSIS OF DIGITAL 
SIGNALS 

Spectrum Analyzer FSE in conjunction 
with the optional Vector Signal Analyzer 
FSE-B7 is ideal for demodulating and 
measuring digitally modulated signals 
with frequencies up to 3.5 GHz, 7 GHz, 
26.5 GHz or 40 GHz. This universal tool 
offers a wide variety of settings: 

► Demodulation of all common 
mobile-radio signals 

► Freely selectable symbol rates 

► Type of filter 

► Roll-off factor or BT product of filter 

► Synchronization bit sequences 

► Predefined, application-specific set- 
tings for all conunon standards, e.g., 
GSM. PCS 1900, NADC, CDMA (IS95) 




Measurement of modulation error of 
pi/4-DQPSK signals (NADC). 



VERSATILE DISPLAY OF RESULTS 

► In-phase and quadrature signals 

► Magnitude and phase 

► Vector and constellation diagrams 

► Eye and trellis diagrams 

► Sum fault: amplitude, frequency, 
phase, vector 

POWER RAMP MEASUREMENTS 

To perform power ramp measurements 
on TDMA systems such as GSM or 
DECT in line with standards, reference 
must be made to synchronization 
sequences (pre- or mid-amble) in order 
to establish a time reference. Making 
such measurements to standard is not 
possible using conventional analyzers. 

ACCURATE AM, FM AND PHIM 
MEASUREMENTS 

Featuring high-accuracy measurement 
of the modulation depth and frequency 
deviation coupled with the display of 
demodulated signals in the time 
domain, FSE not only enables testing 
of analog and dual-mode radio equip- 
ment but also the determination of fast 
transient response in frequency and 
amplitude (see separate data sheet 
Vector Signal Analyzer FSE-B7, order 
number 757.2167). 

Spectrum Analyzer FSE and the option-

ilDVANTEST 

Advantest's quality ^em 
complies with the 
DIN ISO 9002 standard and 
has been certified by TUV 
Product Sen/Ice GMBH. 



Development of the latest communication tech- 
nologies, such as generation digital mobile 
systems (IMT-2000), requires a combination of 
spectrum and modulation measurement abili- 
ties. Furthermore, these new services must be 
introduced in less time and for more users than 
ever before. 

The R3267/3273 is a high-performance spectrum 
analyzer family designed to meet these needs for 
high throughput, wide bandwidth, high frequency 
and high quality digital modulation measurements. 

These instruments feature high dynamic range 
AGP measurement ability in addition to auto- 
mated occupied bandwidth, total power and 
average power measurement functions. 
Furthermore, the R3267 and the R3273 support 
optional modulation analysis for all common 
mobile communication standards. 



HIGH PERFORMANCE SPEaRUM ANALYZERS 

The R3267 and R3273 offer the necessary per- 
formance for a host of applications, from final sys- 
tem integration to production line or maintenance 
settings. This family boasts high signal purity and 
dynamic range (-110 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and 
137 dB) as well as high throughput measurements 
(20 per second), high speed time domain analysis 
(1 ps), and 70 dB (typical at 5 MHz offsets) AGP 
measurements for W-GDMA. 

Such performance makes it ideal for next genera- 
tion mobile communication, satellite communi- 
cation and today’s diverse group of wireless 
communication system applications.

OPTIONAL MODULATION ANALYSIS 
FOR NEXT-GENERATION DIGITAL 
MOBILE COMMUNICATION 

The R3267 and R3273 also provide 
optional modulation analysis for the 
proposed 3 G W-CDMA communication 
standard. Both general modulation 
accuracy measurements as well as code 
domain power measurements, essential 
for W-CDMA analysis are possible. 

Furthermore, base band signal analysis 
is made simple with built-in I/Q 
inputs. Finally, the R3267 and R3273 
also support modulation analysis 
options for CDMAOne, PDC, PHS, 
IS-136, GSM and DECT — meaning one 
instrument meets today’s and tomor- 
row’s measurement needs. 

These options provide measurement 
results such as rho, EVM, time align- 
ment error and carrier feedthrough. 
Furthermore, results can be displayed 
numerically or in a variety of graphical 
formats including constellation dia- 
grams. code domain, eye diagrams, 
power-time templates, demodulated 
data bits and plots of key modulation 
parameters over time. 

The demodulation ability of the R3267 
and R3273 is designed to give you only 
the capabilities that you need. Option 
01 adds the basic capability; individual 
standards can then be ordered as 
required. Further, multiple standards 
can be loaded into the instrument 
simultaneously for greater flexibility. 



HIGH SPEED AND HIGH 
THROUGHPUT 

The R3267 and R3273 have been opti- 
mized for speed to enhance measure- 
ment performance on manufacturing 
lines. These instruments can provide as 
many as twenty 1000 point trace 
updates in one second. In addition, the 
GPIB speed has also been improved 
over previous instruments to remove 
testing time as a production bottleneck. 

SIMPLIFIED STANDARD COMPLIANCE 

The R3267 and R3273 are ideal choices 
for final system development, integra- 
tion and manufacturing test of mobile 
radio transmitters. These instruments 
offer a host of automated measurements 
to make testing a transmitter’s perform- 
ance to a specification easy. The modu- 
lation analysis options provide standard 
templates with pass/fail prompts. The 
R3267 and R3273 also feature standard 
adjacent channel power, occupied band- 
width. channel power and spurious 
search measurements for a complete 
spectral evaluation of a transmitter. 

EASY CONNECTIVITY 

The standard GPIB. RS-232 and parallel 
ports ease the complexity of working 
with existing PC-based systems. 
Furthermore, the MS-DOS floppy 
allows you to quickly save setups, 
instrument traces, data results or even 
.BMP files of screen images. These 
images or ASCII data files can then be 
read by any of a number of standard, 
Windows-compatible programs. Finally, 
the TFT color LCD is VGA compatible 
and an external monitor port allows the 
screen image to be projected for presen- 
tations or viewed on standard computer 
monitors.

SPECTRUM 



LIGHTWEIGHT MICROWAVE 
SPEaRUM ANALYZER 

Today’s advanced information society is driven 
and supported by radio communications technol- 
ogy in which microwave and submillimeter wave 
communications are playing an increasingly 
important role. 

The R3272 spectrum analyzer allows engineers to 
easily and quickly perform spectrum analysis of 
microwave and submillimeter wave bands. This 
high performance, portable spectrum analyzer cov- 
ers a frequency range between 9 kHz and 26.5 GHz 
(up to 325 GHz using an external mixer) with an 
input range between +30 dBm and -120 dBm. an 
amplitude display dynamic range of 100 dB, and a 
resolution bandwidth of 300 Hz. In addition to 
these standard capabilities, the R3272 offers a 1 Hz 
resolution frequency counter. 

The R3272 is optimized for radio and spurious 
measurements for microwave and satellite com- 
munication. 

PORTABILITY ASSURES MOBILITY 

The R3272 is designed to assure maximum 
mobility. A robust design, conforming to MIL 
standards that demand high tolerance to vibra- 
tion and accidental drops, is impeccably housed 
within a compact package. 

ANALYZERS 



USER-FRIENDLY PANEL DESIGN 

The R3272 uses a TFT color LCD to provide a 
clear and accurate display of an array of data and 
information. The panel includes independent 
function keys, such as Occupied Bandwidth, 
Adjacent Channel Power, and Harmonic, for auto- 
matically locating Harmonics of a given signal. It 
also includes frequently used parameter setting 
keys for Bandwidth, Attenuation, and Sweeptime. 
Results are easily stored and accessed on MS-DOS 
compatible PCMCIA memory cards.

R3263 

Same Features as R3463 except: 
-GSM Measurement Option 
Available 

-Designed for General-Purpose 
Burst Envelope/Burst Spectrum 
Analysis 



R3465 8 GHz Modulation 
Spectrum Analyzer 

The R3465 is a high-performance spectrum ana- 
lyzer armed with capabilities sufficient to sup- 
port detailed waveform analysis. The high-speed 
settling synthesizer significantly reduces blank- 
ing time for narrow-band sweep (span of 5 MHz 
or less), thus enabling truly high-speed measure- 
ment. A high-frequency sweep accuracy of 1% 
or less, frequency stability of 2 x 10-» /day, and a 
built-in preselector starting from 1.7 GHz permit 
harmonic measurements with a dynamic range 
of 100 dBc. 

In addition to these powerful spectrum analyzer 
functions, the R3465 also offers built-in modula- 
tion analysis for a variety of digital mobile com- 
munication standards. Available options include 
measurement and graphics packages for CDMA, 
NADC/PDC/PHS, and GSM standards. For addi- 



tional flexibility, the R3465 allows any two of 
these modulation standards to be resident in the 
instrument at the same time. 

R3463 3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer 

The R3463 provides similar performance to the 
R3465 over a 9 kHz to 3 GHz range. This range is 
well suited for many digital radio measurements 
at an economical price. 

R3263 3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer 

The R3263 represents an economical solution for 
general-purpose burst signal analysis. The basic 
unit shares the spectrum analyzer characteristics 
of the R3463 along with spectrum due to modu- 
lation, spectrum due to switching, in-band spuri- 
ous, and zero-span burst envelope measure- 
ments. GSM measurement capability can be 
added with available options.

One-button Measurements 

The R3465/R3463 allow one-button 
measurement of occupied bandwidth, 
adjacent channel leakage power, and 
harmonic signals. Assigning frequently 
used measurement functions to special 
function keys frees the user from repeti- 
tive panel operations. Measurements 
can be started by a simple one-key 
operation. The SINGLE key advances 
the measurement incrementally by each 
key stroke. The REPEAT key provides 
continuous measurements. 

Automatic Standard 
Parameter Settings 

Standard measurements of digital radio 
systems including PHS, PDC, NADC, 
CDMA, and GSM usually involve com- 
plicated parameter settings for each 
standard and measurement item. The 
R3465/R3463 has eliminated the bur- 
den for engineers by automating setting 
procedures, and one-touch settings of 
user-defined standards. 

Two PCMCIA Memory 

Card Slots 

Two memory card slots are provided to 
enable save/recall of system conditions 
as well as measurement results. On- 
screen displays can be saved in .BMP 
format for use in documentation. 

Easy-to-View Color Display 

A large, high-resolution, full-color TFT 
6.5 in. LCD display provides powerful 
support for multi-window operations. 
Optimum viewing is provided by a 
15-degree adjustable tilt mechanism. 

CDMA Modulation Analysis 
(with Opt. 6i) 

With addition of Opt. 61, the 
R3465/R3463 performs CDMA transmis- 
sion measurements in accordance with 
IS-95. This option provides cellular and 
PCS base/mobile station measurements 
in a single test set. In addition, the unit 
offers waveform quality analysis (rho) 
and code domain power measurements. 



www.tektronix.com/Measurement/commtest/ 



R34-AR CDMA Base Station 
Transmitter Autorun Software 

The Tektronix R34-AR autorun program 
simplifies CDMA Base Station transmit- 
ter measurements on the Advantest 
R3463 and R3465. The CDMA Tx 
Autorun program allows the user to 
configure the instrument for measure- 
ments in one, simplified menu screen. 
Another screen allows the user to define 
pass fail limits for all common CDMA 
transmitter measurements including 
rho. frequency error, error vector magni- 
tude, code domain performance, and 
channel power. The program automati- 
cally configures the instrument correctly 
for each measurement. 

Measurements can be run in either a 
single or repeat mode, with pass fail and 
numeric results shown on a summary 
screen. The repeat mode also tallies 
basic statistics, including maximum, 
minimum, and average recorded values 
over the length of the test. Result pages 
can be copied to printers, plotters, or 
PC compatible Flash Ram cards in 
.BMP format. 

The R34-AR program comes pre- 
installed on a Flash Ram card. This 
card also has sufficient memory space 
to allow for saving multiple measure- 
ment reports. 

NADC/PDC/PHS 

Modulation Analysis 

The R3465 and R3463 come standard 
with the ability to perform modulation 
analysis of NADC, PDC, and PHS sig- 
nals. Measurements such as phase error, 
magnitude error, error vector magnitude, 
and I/Q origin offset can be made at the 
push of a button. Additional options 
allow for graphical display of these 
measurements as well as a constellation 
diagram and demodulated data. 

GSM Modulation Analysis 

With the addition of the GSM transmis- 
sion options, the R3465 and R3263 can 
perform frequency error, phase error, 
and power vs. time measurements on 
GSM signals. Additional display 
options allow these results to be shown 
graphically, along with the demodulat- 
ed data and an FFT of the phase error.

The R3561L CDMA test source unit is 
used in combination with the 
R3465/3463 series modulation spec- 
trum analyzer. CDMA test source con- 
trol option (Opt. 09) is necessary for the 
R3465/3463. The R3561L outputs a 
modulated signal conforming to lS-95 
to test the receiver characteristics of the 
base station. One unit can be used for 
both cellular and PCS systems. 

R3561 CDMA Test Source 

The stand-alone R3561 series CDMA 
soiurce can be used to test base and 
mobile stations for both cellular and 
PCS CDMA systems. The R3561 gener- 
ates a base station signal conforming to 
IS-97 with a maximum of three code 
channels (Pilot, Sync and Traffic). The 
unit Ccm also generate a reverse traffic 
channel signal conforming to IS-98 for 
CDMA mobile stations. The R3561’s 
wide frequency range and excellent 
waveform quality means the instrument 
is useful in a host of applications, 
including manufacturing test of BTS 
and MS receivers, as well as testing of 
RF modules and subsystems. The R3561 
can be used with the R3463/3465, or 
independently through GPIB control.

For Field Maintenance of 
Microwave Radio Facilities and 
Digital Mobile Communication 

The radio communication field is undergoing 
fast growth on a global scale, expanding the fre- 
quency band usage across the spectrum from the 
microwave to the millimeter-wave bands. The 
U3661, at 8.5 kg, is the lightest weight 
microwave spectrum analyzer in the world. 

It accommodates the diverse needs of these vari- 
ous communication systems. As well as 
enhanced basic performance as a spectrum ana- 
lyzer, the U3661 is equipped with many stan- 
dard functions such as power calculation and 
high-speed sweep. 



The compact, lightweight design of the U3661 
utilizes a three-way power source system which 
includes a battery; it is an optimum analyzer for 
field measurement. This unit also has a built-in 
RS232 interface for a personal computer, facili- 
tating flexible data management using standard 
memory cards. 

The U 3 661 is rugged enough to satisfy the 
requirements of vibration, shock and drop tests, 
allowing them to be used safely under harsh 
field conditions.

The R3 132/3 162 series spectrum analyzers offer 
outstanding measurement capabilities and per- 
formance, at an affordable price. 

For various applications, such as Cable TV, 

EMC measurement and Digital Mobile. 
Communications, the R3132/3162 can be cus- 
tomized by selecting from available options. 

BASIC FUNaiONS 

Basic functions are reinforced so that the 
R3132/3162 can be used in various fields. For 
example, the internal automatic calibration 
function guarantees the total level accuracy of 



±1.5 dB; level correction factor can be stored in 
the internal memory, DDS is employed to 
improve frequency reading accuracy, and fre- 
quency span error is lowered to less than 1%. 

The R3 132/3 162 offer wider dynamic range and 
lower 2nd and 3rd order distortion by improving 
1 dB compression point. 

As a result of increasing the sweep repetition 
cycles by improving the synthesized local oscilla- 
tor, 20 traces/second (typ.) data rewriting becomes 
possible, enabling far more real-time waveform 
measurement. Also, the high speed GPIB increas- 
es the throughput of automatic measurement. 

FOR MANY APPLICATIONS 

For EMI precompliance measurement, 6 dB 
bandwidth filters (9 kHz, 120 kHz and 1 MHz) 
and a QP detector are equipped as standard. An 
optional 200 Hz narrow RBW filter can be added 
for EMC measurements. A high-speed time 
domain measurement function which is indis

pensable for mobile communications, is 
available as an option. 

By using the double-screen display 
function, you can specify the 
rising/falling edge of TDMA waveforms 
and display the magnified image. 

The R3132/3162 series spectrum ana- 
lyzer has AGP and OBW operation 
functions which are indispensible for 
evaluating the transmission characteris- 
tic of radio systems. 

With various other functions such as 
AUTO TUNE, 1 Hz resolution frequen- 
cy counter, dBc/Hz, %AM, and 
PASS/FAIL test by limit value, the 
R3132/3162 series can easily perform 
several types of measurements. 

Even for signals which are lower in 
amplitude than the average noise level, 
the preamplifier ensures level calibrat- 
ed, high-accuracy measurement. 

For measuring the attenuation charac- 
teristics of filters or the frequency char- 
acteristics of cables, etc., a built-in 
tracking generator is available as an 
option. Because the output level can be 
set in a wide range, it is possible to 
measure amplifier gain, frequency 
response, etc. 

EASY-OPERATION INTERFACE 

The high-resolution, 6.5-inch TFT color 
LCD provides easy-to-see display of 
data. A VGA output is provided for 
external display. 

Measured waveform data and setting 
condition can be saved in or recalled 
from the internal memory. Using the 
floppy disk drive which is equipped as 
standard, you can manage more meas- 
urement data. Text data or Bitmap data 
on floppy disk are also useful for mak- 
ing documents on a personal computer. 

As the hard-copy function is provided 
to ESC/P. ESC/P-R and PCL, measured 
data can be printed out on general- 
purpose printers. 

GPIB and RS232 are equipped as 
standard.

U3641/U3641N Field Portable 
Spectrum Analyzers 

The U3641/N is a 3 GHz synthesized spectrum 
analyzer ideal for applications where portability 
is a must. With a base unit weight of 15 lbs. and 
the ability to run from AC, DC or optional bat- 
tery power sources, the U3641/N has been 
designed specifically to meet the needs of field 
installation and maintenance applications. The 
synthesized local oscillator allows high- 
precision and high-stability measurements. 
Furthermore, tlie unit features optional resolu- 
tion bandwidths down to 100 Hz. A fast zero 
span sweep speed of 50 ps allows characteriza- 
tion of TDMA signals, and its built-in measure- 
ment functions allow for easy verification of 
communication standard compliance. 

The U3041/N can be customized for a variety of 
applications by selecting from a wide range of 
available options. 



WIDE ARRAY OF ANALYSIS FUNCTIONS 

Along with functions such as a frequency count- 
er with a 1 Hz resolution and a 20 dB gain pre- 
amplifier, these analyzers come standard with 
measurement functions such as third order inter- 
modulation distortion, percent AM, occupied 
bandwidth and adjacent channel leakage power. 
GO-NO GO evaluations of the displayed wave- 
form can also be easily performed using the limit 
line and PASS/FAIL functions which allow 
upper and lower limits to be set on the screen. 

Using the user-define function, commonly 
used measurements can be easily assigned to 
function keys, allowing a user-created custom, 
easy-to-use menu. 

THE LIGHTEST FIELD ANALYZERS 
IN THEIR CLASS 

'Fhese analyzers are light and compact - 15 lbs. 
base unit, under 20 lbs. with battery. The easy- 
to-attach strap allows the analyzer to be carried 
on the shoulder for transport or during measure-

ments. The rugged construction meets 
MIL-T-28800 and stands up to the harsh 
conditions of field use. 

CDMA MEASUREMENTS 

Addition of the CDMA Option 60 
enables easy one-button measurement 
of CDMA transmission characteristics 
including in-band spurious, occupied 
bandwidth, channel power and adja- 
cent channel power. Measurements 
are included for both base stations 
and mobile phones, at cellular and 
PCS frequencies. 

THREE POWER SOURCES 
TO CHOOSE FROM 

The U3641/U3641/N can operate not 
only on 100/200 V AC power, but also 
on +10 to +16 V DC or the optional 
battery pack. Choose the power 
source that matches your need for 
portable flexibility. 

LARGE COLOR TFT LCD DISPLAY 

The 6 in. color TFT LCD display 
enhances viewing of complex measure- 
ments. A built-in tilt mechanism allows 
adjusting the viewing angle ±15 degrees 
to improve visibility and efficiency. 

COMPUTER AND INTERFACE FRIENDLY 

These analyzers are well-suited for 
computer-based applications. Two 
PCMCIA memory card slots allow you 
to store and recall instrument settings 
and measurements. This data can also 
be transferred directly to a computer in 
CSV (comma separated variable) and 
BMP screen image formats. The memo- 
ry card slots incorporate a dust-proof 
shutter and an eject mechanism for reli- 
able operation even in difficult outdoor 
working conditions. 

RS-232C and GPIB ports are also stan- 
dard. This allows you to print hard- 
copies of spectrum information and to 
control the instruments from an external 
computer as well as send/retrieve data. 

Composite video out jacks are standard. 
The output of these spectrum analyzers 
can be easily projected for better view- 
ing in meetings or training sessions.

Independent Operation Keys 
Improve Operability 

AUTO TUNE 

Searches for the signal with the maxi- 
mum level within the 3 GHz band and 
sets the center frequency automatically. 

COUNTER 

Performs frequency measurement with 
the built-in frequency counter simply 
by moving the marker to the signal. 

POWER MEASURE 

The R3131 can measure the power with- 
in the specified band of frequency dif- 
fuse signals and the total power of multi- 
carrier signals. It can also be used to 
measure the occupied fi'equency band- 
width (OBW) and adjacent channel leak- 
age power (AGP) which are essential to 
transmission characteristics testing for 
radio equipment. 

CHANNEL POWER 

The R3131 allows you to measure the 
total power within the window and dis- 
play it as the channel power. 

TOTAL POWER 

Obtains the total power from the spec- 
trum displayed on the screen. This 
function is useful for total power meas- 
urement of multi-carrier signals. 

GATED SWEEP 

The R3131 allows spectrum analysis of 
the burst signal by supplying a trigger 
signal synchronizing with the burst 
transmission. 

SAVE/RECALL 

The R3131 allows you to store and recall 
measured waveform data and measiue- 
ment conditions. The R3131 unit offers 
up to 10 dedicated files for storage. 




PASS/FAIL 

Sets the limited judgment value for the 
level axis using a window. If the mark- 
er falls within the window, the PASS 
judgment results; otherwise, the FAIL 
judgment results. 

EMC 

This function measures electromagnetic 
interference generated by various elec- 
tronic equipment. This function incor- 
porates the 9 kHz and 120 kHz RBW 
and QP detector conforming to the 
CISPR Pub.16-1 standard. In addition, 
using the AM/FM demodulation signal 
fed from the PHONE jack on the rear

2712*2711 



Frequency-corrected tuning and phase- 
lock stabilization enhance the ability to 
resolve close-in signals and reliably 
demodulate narrowband signals. 
Sensitivity up to -127 dBm (-80 dBmV) 
at 300 Hz resolution bandwidth (RBW) 
lets you see weak signals. The built-in 
preamp can improve sensitivity another 
12 dB, up to -139 dBm (-92 dBmV). Up 
to 80 dB on-screen dynamic range 
ensures visibility of weak signals in the 
presence of strong ones. 

A 300 Hz RBW filter with a shape factor 
<7:1 means you’ll see many close-in 
sidebands and spurious or unexpected 
signals you might otherwise miss. At 
the other end of the spectrum the 
5 MHz RBW filter is useful when 
demodulating wideband signals such as 
actively modulated video carriers. 

The built-in signal counter, with 
0.5 ppm ±10 Hz accuracy, offers added 
power for rapidly identifying signals. 
The capability to choose between digi- 
tal and true analog displays lets you 
examine signals for characteristics that 
are not visible on digital-only displays. 

Sweep speeds of 1 psec/div, TV Line 
and TV Field triggering, an internal 
audio amplifier and AM/FM detectors 
and the optional Video Monitor Mode 
all make video communications meas- 
urements easier. 

Bandwidth, Carrier-to-Noise, Noise 
Power, Signal Search and FM Deviation 
modes provide additional measurement 
power and convenience. Occupied 
Bandwidth Mode, with percent settable 
from 1 to 99%, aids in broadcast and 
radio measurements. 

The optional internal or external track- 
ing generator provides high dynamic 
range swept measurements to 1.8 GHz. 

EMC MEASUREMENT 

To help simplify your EMC measure- 
ments, the 2712 offers an optional 
quasi-peak detector, EMI resolution 
bandwidth filters and fully corrected 
E-field intensity measurements to 
assist in pre-certification and trou- 
bleshooting. EMC ancillary devices 
are available to provide a complete 
measurement solution. 




2711 

2711 Spectrum Analyzer 

The 2711 offers a wide range of features 
at an extremely affordable price. This 
value leader is well-suited for checking 
broadcast transmitter performance and 
communications system operations, 
looking for unwanted RF emissions, 
testing two-way communications equip- 
ment, maintaining industrial security 
and teaching frequency domain con- 
cepts in the classroom, plus a wide 
variety of other applications. 

The standard 2711 shares many of 
2712’s valuable features, such as com- 
pact size and light weight (9.5 kg, about 
21 lbs.). Both instruments can also be 
quickly converted to rack operation 
with optional rackmount adapters. 

SELECTION GUIDE 



Frequency accuracy is 1 x 10"^ and sen- 
sitivity is up to -117 dBm (-70 dBmV) 
at 3 kHz RBW. The built-in preamp can 
add another 12 dB, up to -129 dBm 
(-82 dBmV). Up to 80 dB on-screen 
dynamic range helps see weak signals, 
even when strong ones are present. 

True analog display capability, along 
with fast sweep speeds and TV Line 
and TV Field triggering provide con- 
venient demodulation of video carriers 
for making depth-of-modulation checks 
or looking at special baseband 
data, VITS and many other signals. 

An internal audio amplifier and 
AM/FM detectors let you hear demodu- 
lated signals, using either the built-in 
speaker or headphone jack, for fast sig- 
nal identification and trouble-shooting 
in communications applications. 

With the Video Monitor (Opt. 10) 
installed, you can view broadcast (AM) 
TV signals or down-converted satellite 
(FM) signals. 

The 2711 can also be used with a set of 
near-field probes as a handy EMC diag- 
nostic tool.

For Production Test 

Network analyzers can be used to characterize a variety of devices, from components 
and materials to circuits, equipment, and systems. They can he used effectively even 
when individual components or test points cannot he accessed. Network analyzers 
measure the transmission and reflection characteristics of linear circuit networks by 
applying a sine wave to the input of the device-under-test (DUT) and measming the 
resultant signals at the output. The most accurate way to analyze linear circuit net- 
works is to measure the amplitude and phase versus frequency of circuit network 
transmission and reflection characteristics at various frequencies. Knowing these 
relationships provides the information required to characterize the behavior of linear 
networks quickly, accurately, and completely over a hroad frequency range.

Innovation for Versatility, Speed 
AND Accuracy 

A FAMILY FOR EVERY REQUIREMENT 

The vector network analyzers of the ZVR family 
from Rohde&Schwarz have set standards for 
extremely fast, highly accurate and versatile 
test equipment. 

The family comprises the seven Vector Network 
Analyzers ZVRL, ZVRE51, ZVRE52. ZVR61 and 
ZVR62 as well as ZVCE and ZVC which extend 
the frequency range to 8 GHz. All models are 
compact instruments with integrated generator, 
test set and receiver, each tailored to a different 
field of application. 



Thanks to the great variety of options and test 
sets, the analyzers can be tailored even to very 
special kinds of measurement tasks. 

In contrast to a passive test set an active test set 
contains a bias network, e.g. for supplying 
active DUTs. 

Design 

With a unidirectional analyzer only measure- 
ments in the forward direction can be performed. 

With a bi-directional analyzer all four S-parame- 
ters of the DUT can be determined without 
changing connections. 

The 4-channel analyzers provide calibration 
methods like TOM. TRM. TRL and TNA.

The Highlights in Brief 

THREE TIMES TOP SPEED 

High Sweep Rate 

The high measurement speed allows 
more than 25 sweeps/s with 200 points. 
This gives a real analog feeling for tun- 
ing sensitive DUTs in real time. The 
short measurement time of <125 ps per 
point considerably increases the 
throughput in automatic test systems. 




ZVRL (unidirectional) 




ZVRE, ZVCE (bidirectional, 3 channels) 



Fast lEC/IEEE Bus 

Reading out a single marker value via the 
lEC/IEEE bus takes only 15 ms, reading 
out complete trace data (200 values) less 
than 30 ms, which speeds up complex, 
computer-controlled measurements. 

Short Calibration Times 

With the new R&S calibration method

matic full two-port calibration. This cali- 
bration needs less than 20 seconds 
(including computation of error parame- 
ters) and cuts time and operating errors to 
a niinimum. Short measurement time of 
<125 ps per point considerably increases 
the throughput in automatic test systems. 

ZVRL - THE LEAN MODEL 

ZVRL comprises a test set with one 
SWR bridge, two measurement chan- 
nels and a reference channel for meas- 
uring the magnitude and phase of the 
forward S-parameters and S 21 . 

ZVRE AND ZVCE - THE ECONOMY 
MODELS 

The test set of these models comprises 
two SWR bridges (ZVRE) or directional 
couplers (ZVCE), an RF switch, two 
measurement channels and one refer- 
ence channel. They measure the magni- 
tude and phase of all four S-parameters 
of a DUT, allow a full two-port calibra- 
tion (TOSM) and have an exceptionally 
high accuracy and wide dynamic range. 

ZVR AND ZVC - THE UNIVERSAL 
MODELS 

ZVR and ZVC comprise a test set with 
two SWR bridges (ZVR) or directional 
couplers (ZVC), an RF switch, two meas- 
urement channels and - imlike ZVRE 
and ZVCE - two reference channels. 
With this configuration a variety of novel 
calibration procedures, e.g. TNA, can be 
performed, which considerably improve 
the accuracy particularly in non-coaxial 
applications. ZVR and ZVC are suitable 
for applications in R&D and production 
no matter how sophisticated.

Technical Details 

SPEED »25 SWEEPS/S 

An efficient transputer system and the 
extremely fast synthesizer give high 
sweep rates. The result is a ’’quasi-ana- 
log" measurement trace with full error 
correction and high frequency accuracy. 
The dynamic range at the maximum 
sweep rate is 80 dB for the full meas- 
urement bandwidth of 26 kHz. 

DYNAMIC RANGE >130 DB 

The high stopband and low passband 
attenuation of modern RF components 
are difficult for network analyzers to 
handle. However, thanks to fundamen- 
tal mixing, the useful dynamic range of 
the R&S network analyzers is more than 
25 dB better than that achieved by con- 
ventional sampling techniques. Because 
of the low-noise front end, the ZVR 
models attain a dynamic range of >130 
dB, so transmission measurements on 
DUTs with extremely high stopband 
attenuation can be performed at high 
speed - even at low input levels. 

POWER CALIBRATION: TESTING 
ACTIVE DUTS 

Power calibration performed at the test 
ports in the factory ensures constant 
output power and high accuracy in the 
measurement of absolute input power 
over the full frequency range. This is 
particularly important for firequency- 
converting and nonlinear measurements 
on active components. Furthermore, 
with the aid of the Power Calibration 
option frequency-dependent level varia- 
tions of an external test setup can be 
measured and compensated for. 

SIMULTANEOUS DISPLAY OF FOUR 
TRACES ON THE 26 CM COLOR LCD 

The ZVR models are the first network 
analyzers in this price class to simulta- 
neously display four measurement traces 
with independent parameters (measured 




Quad-channel display. 



quantity, frequency range, bandwidth, 
etc). The high-resolution, active, color 
LCD with a high refresh rate allows pre- 
cise alignments without operator fatigue. 

INTEGRATED CONTROLLER 

When equipped with the Controller 
option, the network analyzer can be used 
as a PC. The option comprises an addi- 
tional VGA card, a memory expansion, a 
serial mouse and a keyboard. DOS 6.22 
and Windows 3.1 are included. 

AUTOMATIC TEST SYSTEMS 

Fast recording and processing of meas- 
ured values and, in addition, an SCPI- 
conform lEC/lEEE-bus command set 
make all models of the ZVR family 
ideal for use in automatic measurement 
systems. When equipped with the 
Controller option and a second lEC/ 
lEEE-bus card, the analyzers can be 
used as system controllers. As a result, 
fewer instruments are required; this 
saves space in the system rack. LAN 
connections can be set up with the 
Ethernet option. 

EFFICIENT CALIBRATION TECHNIQUES 

The classic 12-term calibration method 
requires four calibration standards, i.e., 
Through, Open, Short and Match. The 
abbreviation TOSM used for this 
method is derived from the standards 



names. ZVR and ZVC also provide a 
number of other modern calibration 
methods (TOM, TRM, TRL, TNA). 
Unlike TOSM (12-term), they require 
only three different standards. 
Additionally, Lines (L), unknown 
Reflects (R), matched Attenuators (A) 
and symmetrical two-port Networks (N) 
can also be used. Due to its simplicity, 
TOM is the recommended method and 
should therefore be used for general 
applications. To perform a calibration, 
the two test ports are directly connect- 
ed (Through) and an open-circuit 
(Open) and a matched load (M atch) 
have to be connected to each test port. 
For frequencies up to only a few 100 
MHz, it is not necessary to connect an 
open circuit, the ports may simply be 
left open. Thus a complete two-port cal- 
ibration can be performed with only 
two different calibration standards. 

High accuracy can be obtained with a 
minimum of effort using the AutoKal 
option to which only the Through stan- 
dard has to be connected.

Applications 



FILTER MEASUREMENTS (1 TO 4) 

For accurate transmission and reflection 
measurements on narrowband DUTs 
such as resonators and filters, a stable 
generator with high frequency resolu- 
tion and a receiver with wide dynamic 
range and high measurement accuracy 
are required. The analyzers of the ZVR 
family are ideal for such measurements. 

Special band-filter evaluation functions 
(1) minimize the time required for 
checking and tuning filters. Important 
filter data such as bandwidth, center 
frequency, Q and shape factor are dis- 
played at a keystroke. Marker tracking 
functions provide actual information on 
amplitude and frequency in real time 
during DUT adjustment. User-defined 
frequency and scale segments (2) sim- 
plify and speed up evaluation of select- 
ed subranges of a sweep. 

Fully arbitrary zoom even in the Smith 
chart allows the user to concentrate on 
the interesting part of the trace (3 and 4). 



AMPLIFIERS AND MIXERS (5) 

For measuring active components fea- 
turing high gain and high isolation, a 
wide dynamic range as well as high sen- 
sitivity and isolation of measurement 
channels are required. In addition to S- 
parameters and derived quantities, non- 
linear parameters can also be measured: 

► Magnitude of 2nd and 3rd harmonics 

► n dB compression point 

► IP 2 and IP 3 

These parameters can also be displayed 
versus frequency. 

Due to the use of two independent syn- 
thesizers for generator and receiver and 
the ability to control two external gen- 
erators, a variety of measurements can 
be performed at full speed on frequen- 
cy-converting DUTs, e.g., mixers. 

Thanks to the special receiver principle 
used by R&S analyzers, add-ons like fil- 
ters are not required for the suppression 
of spurious. 

Comparison of full two- 
port CALIBRATION PROCEDURES 

By using four instead of three receiver 
channels, ZVR and ZVC unlike ZVRE

COMPATIBLE WITH CAE TOOLS 

When developing circuits on the com- 
puter with the aid of CAE tools, it is 
essential for the S-parameters measured 
on a DUT to be transferred to the respec- 
tive CAE program. Measured S-parame- 
ters are stored on a floppy in a CAE-tool- 
compatible format and ready for direct 
processing by simulation programs. 

AF MEASUREMENTS 

The External Measurements option 
extends the frequency range of ZVRL, 
ZVRE and ZVR down to 10 Hz, for 
instance for audio applications, and 
increases the sensitivity and output 
power of all analyzers. 

MEASUREMENTS ON DUPLEX 
FILTERS (5) 

Duplex filters, which are widely used in 
mobile radio, need simultaneous meas- 
urement and adjustment on several sig- 
nal paths in real time. With the aid of the 
3-Port and 4-Port Adapter options, sever- 
al passband characteristics, e.g., those of 
the TX and RX path, can be displayed 
quasi-simultaneously. All measurement 
paths can be calibrated independently. 

MEASUREMENTS ON PULSED 
SIGNALS (6) 

In the field of mobile radio it is impor- 
tant to know the transient response 
when an amplifier is turned on or off. 
Due to attractive features such as: 

► Up to five measmrements within a 
GSM burst 

► External trigger capabilities. 

The analyzers are able to measure 
the magnitude and phase even of 
pulsed signals.

Test cables and calibration kit (type N). 



TEST SETS 

The network analyzers can be provided 
with different test set options so that an 
optimally configured test setup is avail- 
able to suit the applications. 

For the 4 GHz analyzers “active” or 
“passive” test sets with a characteristic 
impedance of 50 Q or 75 ^2 are avail- 
able. A 50 Q passive test set is standard 
equipment. With active test sets, the 
OUT can be biased directly via the 
inner conductor of the test port. The 8 
GHz models ZVCE and 7NC are always 
equipped with 50 ^2 active test sets. 

Depending on the model, the test sets 
comprise one or two power splitters, an 
electronic switch and one or two SWR 
bridges or directional couplers. 
Additional step attenuators (0 dB to 
70 dB) can be inserted into the genera- 
tor paths and the two measurement 
channels to extend the power range of 
the receivers to +27 dBm. 

When the test sets are fitted with atten- 
uators and the External Measurements 
option, generator and receiver can be 
directly switched to three additional 
ports on the front panel (OUTPUT al, 
INPUT bl, INPUT b2). This increases 
output power, sensitivity and dynamic 
range, and measurements down to 
10 Hz can be performed with the 4 GHz 
models. The test ports are fitted with 
female N connectors. 





CALIBRATION AND VERIFICATION KITS 

The accuracy of a calibrated network 
analyzer is determined by the quality of 
the calibration standards and the repro- 
ducibility of connections. 

Rohde&Schwarz offers accessories for 
all common connector types for the cal- 
ibration and verification of network 
analyzers. 

The calibration kits include the required 
standards for TOSM (12-term) or TOM 
calibrations. Standards with male and 
female connectors are supplied. Sliding 
loads are also available. Supplementary 
calibration kits for the TRL and TOM-X 
methods can also be supplied. 

The quality of the calibration method 
and so the measurement accuracy of the 
network analyzer system can be checked 
with precise verification standards. 

Each verification kit includes a 20 dB 
attenuator, a 40 dB attenuator and two 
air lines, one of them with impedance 
steps (Beatty standard).

The R376xxH Network Analyzers feature unprece- 
dented measurement speed and productivity 
enhancements. The R3765 analyzer covers the fre- 
quency range from 40 MHz to 3.8 GHz; the R3767 
extends the upper frequency limit to 8 GHz. These 
analyzers are designed specifically for testing com- 
ponents in the rapidly expanding field of RF and 
wireless communications (cellular phones, pagers, 
cordless phones, etc.). 

HIGH THROUGHPUT WITH RELIABLE 
MEASUREMENT 

The R376xxH Provide high throughput and high- 
ly reliable measurement. They achieve high- 
speed measurement (0.1 ms/point at 10 kHz 
RBW), wide dynamic range measurement 
(100 dB), two device simultaneous measurement 
with 4-channel 8-trace function and other useful 
functions. Besides a conventional frequency 
sweep function, several new concepts have been 
added. First, a program sweep function allows 
the user to freely change resolution bandwidth 
or output level at any point during the sweep. 
Second, a high-speed level sweep uses a new 
semiconductor switch at the output section and 
is ideal for drive level performance testing of 
quartz oscillators. 



STAND ALONE MEASUREMENT FEATURES 

The R376xxH are designed for stand alone 
benchtop use and high-speed ATE system appli- 
cations. They feature a TFT (thin film transistor) 
color liquid crystal display for measurement 
results. This flat-panel display enhances visibili- 
ty and operability which are important for inter- 
preting and analyzing the results of measure- 
ments (such as data comparison and pattern 
recognition). 

On-screen menus and soft keys provide access to 
a wide variety of routines for both transmission 
and reflection measurements. These include dis- 
plays of magnitude, phase, group delay, SWR, 
Smith Charts or combinations of these. 

BUILT-IN CONTROLLER FUNCTION 

The R376xxH have a built-in BASIC controller 
function for configuration of a high-speed ATE 
system without using an external controller. A 
3.5 in. MS-DOS compatible 1.44 MB floppy disk 
drive is also standard. This allows programs to 
be written on a PC-compatible controller and 
easily ported to the network analyzer.

R3765AH/BH/CH • R3767AH/BH/CH 



POWERFUL 4-CHANNEL/8-TRACE 
FUNCTION WITH SIMULTANEOUS 
DISPLAY 

The R376xxH provide 4-channel/8-trace 
function with simultaneous display 
capability. For example, when a 3-port 
test adapter is connected to the 
R376xxH, simultaneous and real-time 
measurement of Tx/Rx characteristics 
of the duplexer is possible. Channels 1 
and 3 measure four S-parameters of Tx 
and channels 2 and 4 measure those of 
Rx at the same time with a throughput 
of approximately 250 ms (with 201 
points and 2-port full calibration). In 
addition, limit lines and multi-marker 
functions can be used for each of the 
four screens. 

HIGH THROUGHPUT AND HIGH 
RELIABILITY 

Total throughput is one of the most 
important characteristics of an electron- 
ic component measurement system. 
Among many factors, sweep rate has 
the greatest influence on total through- 
put. The R376xxH achieve a 0.1 
ms/point sweep rate (at 10 kHz RBW). 
The R376xxH realizes the highest 
throughput in its class. 

100 DB DYNAMIC RANGE FOR FILTER 
TEST 

For spurious checks in stop band, 
measurement with a wide dynamic 
range is crucial. The R376xxH realize 
100 dB dynamic range with 10 Hz reso- 
lution bandwidth, making it suitable for 
testing of high-attenuation devices used 
in base stations or portable phones. 

PROGRAMMED SWEEP REALIZES 
HIGH-SPEED AND HIGH-RESOLUTION 
MEASUREMENTS 

The R376xxH have a programmed 
sweep function which makes it possible 
to vary output power and resolution 
bandwidth (RBW) during a sweep. In 
evaluation of filter characteristics, for 
example, measurement with high 
speed, high accuracy, and high repro- 
ducibility can be realized by varying 
resolution bandwidth and output power 
within the pass band or stop band. 



208 NETWORK ANALYZERS 



LIMIT LINE FUNaiON FOR 
ADJUSTMENT AND TEST 

The limit line function performs 
PASS/FAIL tests based on the judgment 
value set by the limit line editor. It then 
displays the test result. In addition, the 
color of the limit lines and waveform 
data can be specified for each judge- 
ment area, allowing the user to make 
PASS/FAIL decisions at a glance. In 
POLAR and Smith chart measurement, 
the ability to make limits judgements 
both for amplitude and phase allows 
amplitude/phase adjustment for speci- 
fied frequency ranges with automatic 
test result.

The R3754 Series is a high performance network 
analyzer with greatly enhanced functional per- 
formance and a low price. 

Optimization has been made by setting the meas- 
urement frequency range to the limited band- 
width of 10 kHz to 150 MHz. The R3754 Series 
can be used for adjustment and test in the pro- 
duction and inspection processes of crystal, 
ceramic, LC, and sensor parts. Two types of dis- 
play units are selectable according to the appli-

Power Meters 



Contents RF Power Measurement 

NRj 213 There are two general types of RF power meters: 

URV5/35 216 ► Terminating power meters absorb the test signal and indicate the resistant power 

NRVD/NRVS 218 ► Directional power meters separately measure the forward and reflected power in 

Power Sensors 222 ^ with practically no loss 



Terminating power meters are often referred to simply as power meters. They typi- 
cally have a resistive input impedance of 50 or 75 Q. Depending on the principle of 
operation, either the heat produced is measured, or the RF power at the termination 
is measured with the aid of a diode rectifier. Conventional power meters with diode 
probes have a limited dynamic range, since departures from linearity of the diode at 
as low as 10 pW cause considerable measurement errors. This range can be extend- 
ed by microprocessor-controlled correction of the rectifier characteristics. 

Directional power meters are inserted into an RF line and measure the forward and 
reflected power separately based upon a directional coupler. Directional power 
meters can thus be used for simultaneously checking the transmitter output power 
and the antenna or load matching. Minimum insertion loss is required for the meas- 
urement of higher power levels. The measuring instrument can thus remain con- 
nected to the transmitter output line for continuous monitoring. Special power sen- 
sors with peak weighting are available for measuring pulsed signals (e.g., in 
GSM/TDMA mobile radio). 

MEASUREMENT ACCURACY 

The most important characteristics of a voltmeter or power meter are high measure- 
ment accuracy and short measurement times. This requires the use of microproces- 
sors and computed correction of factors such as frequency response, temperature 
effect and linearity. This relieves the user of error-prone and time-consuming tasks 
such as recalibration of sensors before measmement, or reading, entering and calcu- 
lating correction factors. 

STORED CALIBRATION DATA FOR EASE OF USE 

The sensors offered for use with the URV, NRT and NRV meters are individually 
calibrated and their calibration data stored in memory. All relevant data required to 
produce accurate results are stored in calibration-data memory and are available to 
the meter when plugged in. Even sensor-specific data such as serial number, sensor 
type and calibration date are known to the meter, in addition to the permissible 
measurement and frequency ranges. Only the frequency of the measurement is 
required; the meter automatically scans the data memory for the relevant calibration 
factors and interpolates if necessary.

The Next Generation in 
Directional Power Meters 

Directional povy^er meters are used to determine 
transmit power and matching parameters and 
therefore have a long tradition in the installation, 
maintenance and monitoring of transmitters and 
antennas. The new generation of power reflection 
meters not only offers self-contained sensors but 
also an accuracy and a wealth of functions not 
known before, making them suitable, even more 
so than their predecessors, for use in develop- 
ment, testing and quality management. 



Directional power meters are connected between 
source and load and measure the power flow in 
both directions. The power applied to the load 
and the reflection can thus be measured. 

Compared to low-cost instruments, power meters 
like the NRT provide a number of benefits: most 
importantly high measurement accuracy through 
excellent directivity and a measurement method 
that determines the average power like a thermal 
power meter. The instruments thus provide cor- 
rect measurement results even in case of modu- 
lation or in the presence of several carriers.

Power Meters 

NEWNRT 



Power Sensors NRT-Z43/-Z44 feature 
low insertion loss, very good matching 
and excellent intermodulation charac- 
teristics: the signal to be measured is 
virtually unaffected, the sensor is fully 
transparent. 

Ease of Operation 

With its large display and a manageable 
number of clearly laid out keys, opera- 
tion of the NRT basic unit is extremely 
easy. Switchover between the main 
functions is made at a keystroke. 
Additional settings are made in three 
clearly arranged menus, each of which 
can be accessed at a keystroke. 

A large variety of functions is available 
for daily routine measurements: 

► Choice between average power, aver- 
age burst power, peak envelope 
power (PEP) and peak-to-average 
power ratio (crest factor) 

► Switchover between forward power 
and absorbed power 

► Measurement of power differences 
in dB or % 

► Choice between return loss, SWR or 
reflection coefficient in reflection 
measurements 

► Acoustic SWR monitoring 

► Indication of maximum and mini- 
mum values 

► Quasi-analog bar graph display 

► Choice between measurement at the 
source or at the load 



Versatility Through Options 

The NRT basic unit comes with an lEC- 
bus (IEEE488) and RS-232 interface, 
both to SCPI standard. Three options 
allow the NRT to be adapted to differ- 
ent applications: 

► An additional test input allows the 
sensors of predecessor model NAP to 
be connected, thus covering the fre- 
quency range from 200 kHz with 
power up to 1 kW and above (NRT-Bl) 

► Two additional test inputs for sen- 
sors of type NRT-Z allow simultane- 
ous monitoring of up to three test- 
points (NRT-B2) 

► Battery and built-in charger allow 
mobile use (NRT-B3) 




The Best in Sensors 

DIREaiONAL POWER SENSORS 
NRT-Z43/-Z44 

The new Power Sensors NRT-Z43 and 
NRTZ44 can be used as self-contained 
measuring instruments with digital 
interface even without the basic unit. In 
addition to a directional coupler and 
analog section they comprise a proces- 
sor kernel for control of the hardware 
and remote interface and for processing 
the measured data (temperature com- 
pensation, linearization, zeroing and fre- 
quency-response correction). This com- 
pact concept allows a wealth of meas- 
urement functions without the restric- 
tions of conventional analog concepts.

NEW NRT 



AVERAGE POWER (RMS VALUE) 

This measurement function returns for 
any type of test signal - whether modu- 
lated, unmodulated or several carriers 
- the average value of the power, i.e. a 
result as provided by a thermal power 
meter. It features a measurement range 
of 35 to 40 dB as well as high measure- 
ment accuracy. 



PEAK ENVELOPE POWER (PEP) AND 
CREST FAaOR 

These two parameters provide informa- 
tion on the peak power of a modulated 
envelope and thus describe the overdrive 
characteristics of transmitter output 
stages. The result of the crest factor meas- 
urement is referred to the average power 
and read out in dB. The measurements 
are carried out with a video bandwidth 
adjustable in several steps and allow 
determination of peak power down to a 
duration of 200 ns, i.e. the peak power of 
spread-spectrum signals with RF band- 
'widths of up to about 2 MHz (IS-95 
CDMA, DAB) can also be measured. 



AVERAGE BURST POWER 

This function can be used for measuring 
modulated and unmodulated bursts. The 
measurement is based on the average 
power and the duty cycle, which may be 
defined by the user or determined auto- 
matically by the power sensor. 

COMPLEMENTARY CUMULATIVE DIS- 
TRIBUTION FUNCTION (CCDF) 

This function measures the probability 
of the peak envelope power exceeding a 
preset threshold and thus allows deter- 
mination of the amplitude distribution 
of nondetermined modulation signals.

NRVD Dual-channel Power Meter 

The NRVD Dual-channel Power Meter functions 
like two independent measuring instruments 
housed in one cabinet to perform measurements 
simultaneously and exchange data with one 
another. The two channels can be separately set 
so that two completely different measurements 
can be carried out at the same time. The two 
measured values can also be related to each 
other for direct indication of reflection coeffi- 
cient, SWR and return loss, for instance, when 
an SWR bridge is connected to the meter. 

READOUT OF RESULTS 

Measurement results are displayed with selectable 
resolution on a large 5-digit LCD display with 
adjustable backlighting. The values measured in 
the two channels, or one measured value plus an 
additional item of information (e.g., the correction 
frequency) are displayed simultaneously. All stan- 
dard units of measurement or relative modes can 
be selected. Relative measurements are either 
referred to a stored reference value or to the value 



measured in the second channel. A high-resolu- 
tion bar graph indicator with selectable scaling or 
autoscaling permits quasi-analog display of meas- 
ured values with any unit or resolution. 

POWER SENSORS 

The range of probes and sensors includes thermo- 
couple power sensors, as well as highly sensitive 
diode power sensors, probes, and insertion units. 
This allows the NRVD to cover a frequency range 
from DC to 26.5 GHz and a power span from 400 
pW up to the kW range. 

TEST GENERATOR 

A test generator is included to check measuring 
heads and sensors for proper functioning. It gen- 
erates a low-distortion, highly accurate 50 MHz 
signal of 1 mW power (0 dBm). 

INPUT/OUTPUT WITH OPT. 01 

Option 01 provides a number of inputs and out- 
puts to extend the range of the NRVD.

NRVS Power Meter 

The NRVS Power Meter is the ideal instrument 
for any kind of power measurement in laboratory 
and system applications. Intelligent probes with 
calibration data memory and thermocouple sen- 
sors make user adjustments unnecessary. The 
NRVS provides high-precision measurements 
free of operator errors. 

READOUT OF RESULTS 

Measurement results, units and various items of 
information are displayed on a large 4 1 /2-digit 
LCD display in three steps of resolution. All 
standard units of measurement or relative modes 
can be selected. A high resolution bargraph indi- 
cator with selectable scaling or auto-scaling per- 
mits quasi-analog display of measured values 
with any unit of resolution. 

If pulse-modulated signals are measured, the 
NRVS calculates the pulse peak power from the 
measured average value and the entered pulse 
duty factor; the result is directly displayed. 



MEASUREMENT RATE 

The attainable measurement rate depends upon 
the type of measuring head used as well as the 
setting of the averaging filter, which must be 
matched to the measurement conditions. Taking 
into account the connected measuring head, the 
NRVS automatically selects the appropriate 
measurement rate by determining the optimum 
averaging time required for a steady readout as a 
function of level and selected resolution. This 
automatic selection may be disabled and an 
averaging time of between 4 ms and 25 s set 
manually to measure more quickly than in auto- 
matic operation or to further reduce the noise. 

POWER SENSORS 

The range of probes and sensors includes ther- 
mocouple power sensors, as well as highly sensi- 
tive diode power sensors, probes and insertion 
units. This allows the NRVS to cover a frequency 
range from DC to 26.5 GHz and a power span 
from 400 pW up to the kW range.

A Full Range of Probes, Insertion 
Units and Power Sensors 

These probes, insertion units and power sensors 
extend the measurement range and offer added 
measurement capability. 

THE RIGHT SENSOR FOR EVERY APPLICATION 

Power sensors absorb the power applied and 
provide an equivalent DC voltage at their output. 
To cover the complete power range from less 
than 1 nW to more than 100 mW, two different 
types of power sensors are required: thermocou- 
ple sensors based on the Seebeck effect and 
semiconductor detectors using zero-bias 
Schottky diodes. Both types of transducers are 
available for the entire frequency spectrum. 

THERMOCOUPLE SENSORS 

Thermocouple sensors open up a wide power 
range from 1 pW to 100 mW. Regardless of the 
waveform, they always indicate the RMS power 
over the full range, giving precise results, even 
for modulated or complex signals. 



DIODE SENSORS 

Diode sensors feature a higher sensitivity. They 
are able to measure power to as low as 100 pW. 
Since they measure true RMS power down to 10 
pW, they can even be used for signals with har- 
monic contents, noisy or modulated signals. 

DIODE SENSORS WITH AN INTEGRAL 20-DB 
ATTENUATOR 

Diode sensors with an integral 20-dB attenuator 
fill the gap between pure diode sensors and 
thermocouples. They provide true RMS measure- 
ments in a range up to 1 mW and satisfy the most 
exacting requirements on measurement speed, 
even for levels between 10 and 100 pW, where 
the use of thermocouple sensors is limited. 

PEAK POWER SENSORS 

Peak power sensors contain rectifiers for measur- 
ing the peak modulation. They enable direct 
measurement of the TV sync pulse peak power, 
the power of TDMA signals, as well as of other 
pulsed signals with a pulse width from 2 ps. In 
the frequency range from 1 pW to 20 mW, these 
sensors are a value-for-money alternative to spe- 
cial peak power meters.

POWER SENSORS • PROBES • RF INSERTION UNITS 




Voltage Probes for the URV/NRV family. 



RF PROBES 

RF probes are indispensable for meas- 
urements on non-coaxial circuits and 
components. Small input capacitance 
and low loss enable low-load measure- 
ments directly in the circuit. Dividers 
increase the voltage measurement range 
and minimize the loading of the device 
under test. 

RF INSERTION UNITS 

RF insertion units are used for voltage 
measurements in coaxial circuits. They 
incorporate a diode inserted in the 
inner conductor or connected via a pis- 
ton attenuator and permit broadband 
measurements to be made up to 2 GHz 
with low reflection coefficient. Given 
matched conditions, these insertion 
units can also be used for practically 
no-loss measurements of RF power.

ROHDE&SCHWARZ 

Rohde & Schwarz' quality 
system complies with the DIN 
ISO 9001 standard and has 
been certified by DQS 
(German Association for the 
Certification of Quality 
Systems). 



The new B series of Signal Generator Family 
SMIQ for analog and digital modulation from 
Rohde&Schwarz offers solutions for today and 
tomorrow. This series particularly takes into 
account future developments in the field of third 
generation digital mobile radio. 

The SMIQ family comprises four models which 
differ in their upper frequency limits. These fea- 
ture a hitherto unrivalled versatility regarding 
signal generation and signal quality and are 
therefore ideal for use in development and type- 
approval testing. 

With their outstanding price/performance ratio, 
these signal generators are also economically 
attractive for applications in production. 

The wide frequency range from 300 kHz to 
6.4 GHz covers all main radio bands including 
their IF ranges. 

The high-grade I/Q modulator fitted as standard 
ensirres minimum error vector magnitude and 
high intermodulation suppression. 



Using modern digital signal processor (DSP) 
technology, the versatile concept allows the gen- 
eration of high-precision digital modulation sig- 
nals with high bit rates without any limitations 
on modulation modes or standards. 

In addition to digital modulation, the signal 
generators provide the full range of analog 
modulation modes as well as simultaneous 
modulation capability.

Outstanding RF 
Characteristics 

FROM 300 KHZ TO 3.3 GHZ 

With its wide frequency range, the 
SMIQ family has the right model for 
every application. The uppermost fre- 
quency limit of 3.3 GHz leaves suffi- 
cient margin even for WLL (wireless 
local loop) systems. Frequency exten- 
sion options allow upgrading to higher 
frequency limits. 

LEVEL - HIGH AND PRECISE 

With an output level of maximum +13 
dBm (+16 dBm in overrange) insertion 
losses caused by cables or switching 
matrices can easily be compensated. For 
driving components with high input 
level the use of an external amplifier is 
not necessary. 

A level accuracy of typ. ±0.5 dB 
allows high-precision measurements 
even on highly sensitive analog and 
digital receivers. 

EXCELLENT SPECTRAL PURITY 

SMIQ provides output signals of excel- 
lent spectral purity. Low-noise frequen- 
cy synthesis ensures modulation of 
highest quality for reliable test signals. 

FAST SETTING TIMES 

Fast setting times are among the most 
important criteria when it comes to 
choosing the right signal generator, 
especially in production. 

The synthesizers of the SMIQ family 
excel in this respect: with a frequency 
setting time of less than 15 ms they 
allow extremely fast measurements. 
With option SM-B50 (fast CPU) the fre- 
quency setting time is reduced to 3 ms. 

Besides standard sweep functions for 
RF, AF and level, SMIQ features an 
extremely versatile and fast sweep 
mode for frequency and level settings to 
be carried out with the aid of stored 
lists. This mode with a setting time of 
less than 500 ps is ideal for frequency 
hopping applications. 

LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP 

The use of high-precision reference ele- 
ments with long-term stability ensures 
reliable operation over a long period of 
time. The three-year calibration inter- 
vals cut costs and increase availability.

DESIGNED FOR THE FUTURE 

The open concept of SMIQ allows the 
functionality of the signal generator to 
be adapted to future requirements in a 
simple and cost-effective way. 

Since SMIQ uses programmable digital 
signal processing chips throughout, its 
capabilities are not limited by the hard- 
ware used. 

New functions can be downloaded 
very simply via the serial interface of 
the generators. 

THREE WAYS OF GENERATING 
DIGITAL SIGNALS 

Vector Signal Generators SMIQ can gen- 
erate digitally modulated signals in 
three different ways. 

1. Vector Modulation 

In this mode, externally generated I/Q 
signals are applied to the I/Q modulator 
of SMIQ. I/Q Modulation Generator 
AMIQ together with Simulation 
Software WinIQSIM are perfect tools for 
the generation of external I/Q signals. 

2. Digital Modulation 

The universal modulation coder 
(SMIQBlO) and data generator 
(SMIQBll) options provide a platform 
for generating digitally modulated sig- 
nals that are variable in a wide range. 
Modulation mode, filtering, data 



source and symbol rate can be selected 
by the user. 

3. Digital Standards 

The digital standards provide at a key- 
stroke base-station and mobile-station 
signals to telecommunication 
standards - based on the capabilities of 
the optional digital modulation coder 
(SMIQBlO). The TDMA (time division 
multiple access) standards GSM, DECT, 
NADC (IS-54C, IS-136), PDC and PHS 
come with the optional data generator 
(SMIQBll). The CDMA (code division 
multiple access) standard IS-95 
(SMIQB42) or W-CDMA (SMIQB43) are 
also available as an option. The number 
of future digital standards that can be 
simultaneously accommodated in SMIQ 
is unlimited. 

Digital Modulation 

DIGITAL STANDARDS 

SMIQ, fitted with the modulation coder 
(SMIQBlO) and data generator 
(SMIQBll) options, provides standard- 
conformal signals for testing mobile and 
base stations of the main mobile radio 
networks. These test signals contain the 
necessary protocol information and 
frame structures for testing receivers. 

The timeslots (bursts) and their data 
contents can be specified for the TDMA 



standards GSM, DECT, NADC, PDC and 
PHS via user-friendly menus. The main 
burst types are predefined and available 
at a keystroke. They can easily be modi- 
fied, stored and reused for tests. 



Continuous PRBS data streams and 
internally generated data lists as well as 
externally provided serial data streams 
can be inserted in real-time into the 
data fields of the frame structures. 






GSM Global System for Mobile 
Communication 



Frames and timeslot configuration 
conform to the GSM standard. Each 
time-slot (burst) has a certain data 
structiue depending on its use, e.g., 
as traffic channel or channel for 
frequency synchronization. 

DECT Digital Enhanced Cordless 
Telecommunication Standard 

This operating mode allows signals to 
be generated to ETSI DECT standard. 



NADC North American Digital Cellular 
(IS-54, IS-136) 

The data protocol structure conforms to 
NADC specifications IS-54 and IS-136. 
The following predefined burst types 
are available: uplink burst, downlink 
burst, all data. 

PDC Personal Digital Cellular (RCR 
STD-2 7C) 

The data protocol structure conforms 
to PDC specification RCR-27C. This 
standard is largely identical with the 
NADC standard. 

PHS Personal Handy Phone System 
(RCR STD-28) 

The data protocol structure conforms to 
PHS specification RCR-28. The follow-

ing predefined burst types are provided: 
control physical slot, communication 
physical slot, sync, TCH, VOX, all data. 

CDMA IS-95 Code Division Multiple 
Access (with Opt. SMIQB42) 

For the CDMA base-station signal (for- 
ward link) up to 64 code channels can 
be generated with user-selected Walsh 
codes. The power of the code channels 
can be selected independently for up to 
four channels. The channel data con- 
sist of various internal PRBS or fixed 
data patterns. 

The mobile-station signal (reverse link) 
can be configured for full-rate as well as 
for half-rate operation. Moreover it is 
possible to generate a channel-coded 
reverse-link signal. 

W-CDMA Wideband Code Division 
Multiple Access (with Opt. SMIQB43) 

W-CDMA - a “standard” currently still 
in the definition phase — is one of the 
favored technologies for the third mobile 
radio generation. Rohde&Schwarz, 
known as a trendsetter in the field of 
mobile communication test and meas- 
urement, is already able to offer signal 
generation capabilities for this mobile 
radio standard of the future. 

Fitted with option W-CDMA 
(SMIQB43), SMIQ is able to generate W- 
CDMA signals to the Japanese specifica- 
tions of NTT DoCoMo and ARIB*^. 

Like with lS-95 CDMA, uplink (mobile 
station to base station) and downlink 
(base station to mobile station) can be 
simulated with up to 15 code channels. 
A chip rate of 4.096 Mchip/s is preset, 
but can be varied any time. 

There is a choice of different types of 
physical channels, such as perch, com- 
mon control or dedicated physical chan- 
nels. The frame structure consisting of 
various data fields (traffic power control 
or long code mask symbol) is automati- 
cally generated for each type of channel.

Businesses (ARIB), Specifications of Air

Special Options 

FADING SIMULATION - OPTIONS 
SMIQB14/B15 

With the optional fading simulator, the 
SMIQ models are the first signal genera- 

230 SIGNAL GENERATORS 



tors allowing tests that correspond to the 
capabilities of conventional simulators. 
Fading is thus no longer a matter of high- 
ly speciahzed measurement technology. 

Fading simulation in SMIQ is based on 
the WSSUS (wide sense stationary 
uncorrelated scattering) model and 
meets the test specifications of all main 
mobile radio standards, such as GSM 
Rec. 05.05. Both internal and external 
I/Q baseband signals are provided with 
defined multipath propagation factors 
through digital signal processing. 
Conversion to the RF with calibrated 
level setting is made with the available 
hardware of SMIQ.

1/Q Modulation Generator Simulation Software 

NEW AMIQ/I/Q • WINIQSIM 



AMIQ/WinIQSIM - An Ideal 
Pair 

The number of systems based on com- 
plex digital modulation methods has 
dramatically increased in every field of 
communications. I/Q modulation is 
thus gaining in importance for the 
development of such new modulation 
methods. Modulation Generator AMIQ 
and Simulation Software WinlQSIM 
open up new dimensions for the gener- 
ation of I/Q signals. 

AMIQ is a dual-channel modulation 
generator that has been designed for use 
as an I/Q source. It is programmed with 
Software WinlQSIM. Alternatively, 
AMIQ can be operated from a Vector 
Signal Generator SMIQ. 

Each chcmnel can store 4,000,000 sam- 
ples. Even at high symbol rates 
sequences of sufficient length can thus 
be generated. With clock frequencies of 
up to 100 Msample/s and a high ampli- 
tude resolution of 14 bits, AMIQ is the 
ideal source for any signal in the world 
of digital modulation. 

An automatic amplitude/offset align- 
ment as well as fine adjustment of the 
skew provide excellent symmetry of the 
two channels which previously was 
extremely difficult to attain with dual- 
channel ARB generators. The error vec- 
tor can thus be minimized. 

The filters have also been optimized 
regarding group delay, frequency 
response and identical configuration in 
the two channels for use as an 1/Q 
modulation source. 

A typical application of AMIQ and 
WinlQSIM is not only to drive the I/Q 
inputs of a vector signal generator. This 
combination is also ideal for direct 
applications in the baseband, e.g. for 
testing I/Q modulators/demodulators. 



...THE Ultimate in IQ Signals 

I/Q SIMULATION SOFTWARE... 

► Single-carrier signals 

► Multicarrier signals (up to 512 mod- 
ulated or unmodulated carriers) 

► CDMA signals with user-selectable 
number of code channels 

► Addition of impairments 

► Data editor for creating any TDMA 
frame configuration 

► Predefined files for TDMA mobile 
radio standards (GSM, DECT, NADC 
(IS54C/IS136), PDC, PHS) 

► IF signal calculation 

► Graphic display of calculated signals 
(constellation diagram, vector dia- 
gram, i(t)/q(t), magnitude and phase, 
eye pattern, etc) 

► Remote control of AMIQ 
Modulation methods like GMSK or 
pi/4DQPSK are used in mobile commu- 
nication systems such as GSM (Global 
System for Mobile Communications) or 
NADC (North American Digital 
Cellular). These complex modulation 
modes are usually generated with the 
aid of an I/Q or vector modulator. The 
calculation and generation of the 
required baseband signals is of course 
quite complex. 

WinlQSIM, successor of the well- 
proven IQSIM, is a Windows software, 
allowing calculation of I and Q base- 
band signals. Its capabilities range 
from single-carrier modulation, genera- 
tion of multicarrier, CDMA and W- 
CDMA signals through to TDMA frame 
configurations with the help of a con- 
venient data editor. All modulation 
parameters and impairments can be 
simulated for single-carrier and multi- 
carrier as well as for CDMA signals. To 
put it in a nutshell: WinlQSIM is an 
indispensable tool for anyone engaged 
in modern digital modulation. 

SINGLE CARRIER 

Modulation parameters such as type 
of modulation, coding, symbol rate, 
filter and window functions as well 
as oversampling can be set for a 
single-carrier signal. 



Impairments which may be caused by a 
real I/Q modulator are also taken into 
consideration. It is for instance easy to 
simulate I/Q imbalance, carrier leakage 
or quadrature error. The simulation of 
VCO noise or phase and frequency off- 
sets of an oscillator is one of the very 
special features of WinlQSIM. These 
and many other setting possibilities 
enable the user to take account of real 
impairments as early as in the develop- 
ment of components and modules. But 
also for applications in production 
environments signals can be composed. 
Such signals allow several parameters 
to be tested at a time and thus testing 
time to be reduced dramatically. 

OPTION AMIQ B2: DIFFERENTIAL 
OUTPUTS FOR THE AMIQ ARBITRARY 
WAVEFORM GENERATOR 

As more components and subsystems 
are provided with balanced I/Q inputs, 
there is a need to directly provide this 
stimulus to devices such as mixers and 
modulators. In the past, customers have 
developed custom circuits to provide 
differential inputs to their DUT. AMIQ 
option B2 provides 4 outputs on the 
front panel of the AMIQ for differential 
stimulus. I, —I, Q and -Q can all be 
independently varied in DC offset for 
exacting differential drive matching. DC 
offset bias can be varied up to ± 2.5 V.

CW, Signal Generator or 
Synthesized Sweep Generator... 

SMR AS CW GENERATOR 

The SMR family comprises three basic models 
designed as CW generators with pulse modula- 
tion capability. The three models have a com- 
mon lower frequency limit of 1 GHz and provide 
frequency coverage up to 20 GHz (SMR20), 

27 GHz (SMR27) and 40GHz (SMR40). The lower 
limit can be expanded to 10 MHz by the optional 
Frequency Extension 0.01 to 1 GHz (SMR-Bll). 

Offering an excellent price/performance ratio, 
each of the three basic models is ideal for the 
user wishing to enter the field of microwave test- 
ing at an affordable price. Should measurements 
become more demanding - no problem with 
SMR: all basic models can be upgraded fast and 
easily by means of options to give a signal gener- 
ator with AM/FM modulation capability or a 
synthesized sweep generator featuring fast, fully 
synthesized analog ramp sweep.

SSB phase noise at 10 GHz. 

Excellent Spectral Purity 

SMR stands out from other generators 
for its excellent spectral purity. 
Advanced frequency synthesis with frac- 
tional-N divider makes for low SSB 
phase noise and high spurious suppres- 
sion, both of which are for example pre- 
requisites for reliable receiver measure- 
ments. Modern microwave filters in the 
output path of the instrument ensure 
excellent harmonics suppression. This is 
necessary to obtain conclusive results in 
scalar network analysis measurements. 

Stable Output Frequency 

The crystal reference built in as stan- 
dard ensures an accurate, low-drift out- 
put frequency. SMR can be fitted with 
the optional OCXO Reference Oscillator 
SMR-Bl to satisfy the most stringent 
requirements on accuracy and aging. 

Application-oriented Frequency 
Resolution 

The standard frequency resolution of 1 
kHz of SMR offers a comfortable margin 
for most applications, for example fre- 
quency response measurements in the 
laboratory and in production and servic- 
ing. To satisfy more stringent require- 
ments, e.g. for scientific applications and 
research, option SMR-B3 is available to 
improve frequency resolution to 0.1 Hz. 



www.tektronix.com/Measurement/commtest/ 



Pulse Modulator Included 

Pulse modulation is still the most 
important modulation mode for 
microwave applications. So, each of our 
basic units is equipped with a high- 
quality pulse modulator. The on/off 
ratio is better than 80 dB, the rise/fall 
time shorter than 10 ns. Pulse widths of 
less than 20 ns are possible. These guar- 
anteed values make SMR ideal for use 
in the development, production and 
maintenance of radar equipment. 

Pulse Generator Option 

The optional Pulse Generator SMR-Bl 4 
is an ideal complement to the pulse 
modulator. It generates single and dou- 
ble pulses with pulse frequencies up to 
10 MHz. The pulse generator can also 
be triggered externally and operated in 
the external gate mode. The pulse 
width and delay are freely selectable 
over a wide range. 

SMR AS SIGNAL GENERATOR 

The optional AM/FM/SCAN Modulator 
SMR-B5 added to the basic models turns 
them into fully-fledged signal generators 
TAuth AM and FM modulation capability. 
The option also includes an LF generator 
for sinewave and squarewave signals in 
the range 0.1 Hz to 10 MHz. 

FM and FSK 

The FM modulator has a modulation 
bandwidth from DC to 5 MHz. Digital 
frequency shift keying (FSK) is possible 
with data rates from 0 to 2 MHz. 




Typical max. output level as a function 
of fi-equency. 

SMR AS SYNTHESIZED SWEEP 
GENERATOR 

Analog Ramp Sweep Option 
The analog ramp sweep mode corre- 
sponds to the analog sweep of classical 
sweep generators except that the sweep 
is fully synchronized over the complete 
range. In this way, the excellent frequen- 
cy accuracy of digital step sweeps is 
achieved on the whole, and this at much 
higher sweep rates of up to 600 MHz/ms. 
In conjunction with scalar network ana- 
lyzers or suitable spectrum analyzers, 
real-time adjustment of microwave filters 
can be performed. 

To mark important frequency ranges 
such as filter bandwidths or the position 
of attenuation poles, SMR has 10 user- 
selectable frequency markers which can 
be output as pulse markers at the mark- 
er output (HCT/TTL level) or alterna- 
tively modulated on the RF level as 
level markers (level reduction of 1 dB). 

The use of SMR in conjunction with a 
scalar network or spectrum analyzer is 
illustrated by the figure below. 

SMR AS UPCONVERTER 

IF Input Option 

Vector signal generators like SMIQ gener- 
ate all types of digitally modulated sig- 
nals up to RF frequencies of 6.4 GHz. To 
generate digitally modulated signals up to 
40 GHz, SMR offers upconversion capa- 
bility by means of the IF input option.

SMT Signal Generator 

The SMT Signal Generator covers the complete 
range of conventional analog receiver measure- 
ments up to 6 GHz. It provides exceptionally 
high signal quality, outstanding level of accura- 
cy, a wide variety of modulation and signal gen- 
eration modes, a customizable configuration and 
ease of operation. 



THE IDEAL EMS SIGNAL SOURCE 

With a specified lower frequency limit of 5 kHz 
(under-range down to 1 kHz), the SMT fully cov- 
ers the frequency range for EMS measurements 
stipulated by lEC 801. The digital, step-by-step 
sweep function, with preselectable start and stop 
frequency, span, step width and step time, 
enables the convenient testing of wide frequency 
ranges. During tlie frequency sweeps, no level 
overshoots will occur. The sweep function can 
also be used for the RF level and AF fi:equency. 

The frequency response of cables, amplifiers, 
TEM cells, etc., can be compensated in the sig- 
nal generator by means of a level-correction 
function. Complicated external level controls or 
test routines are not required.

SMT 



EXCELLENT RF CHARACTERISTICS AT A 
REASONABLE PRICE 

For high-frequency measurements on 
AM, FM and SSB receivers, the signal 
source must he superior to the device- 
under-test. The low residual FM and 
SSB phase noise of the SMT make it 
suitable for in-channel and blocking 
measurements, even on high-end 
receivers. The small level error of <1 dB 
throughout the frequency range allows 
high-precision sensitivity measurements. 



MINIMUM RF EMISSIONS FOR 
SENSITIVE DUTS 

Measurements on highly sensitive 
receivers such as pagers not only 
require high signal quality, but also 
extremely high RF shielding of the 
signal source. Elaborate shielding 
measures keep RF emissions of the 
SMT to a minimum. 



MEMORY SEQUENCE FUNCTION FOR 
AUTOMATIC MEASUREMENTS 

For frequently repeated measurement 
series, the memory sequence function 
allows a sequence of measurements to 
be run without an external controller. 
Up to 50 instrument settings can be 
stored in non-volatile memory.

SME 



DIGITAL MODULATION 

With the DM Coder (standard on 
SME03E, Opt. 11 all other models) the 
SME provides a variety of network-spe- 
cific digital modulation modes:

GMSK 


GSM, DCS 1800/DCS 1900 
(PCN), CDPD, DSRR,

GFSK 


DEa,a2,a3

ERMES, APC025 
FLEX, MODACOM 


FSK,FFSK 


POCSAG, FLEX, Cityraf 



The SME has been designed to allow 
for the integration of future types of 
modulation and networks. 



Frequency and phase changes are pro- 
duced by DDS (direct digital synthe- 
sis). The frequency and phase response 
are therefore synthesizer-accurate. 
There is no drift at the carrier frequen- 
cy. The DM coder is provided standard 
in the SME03E. 

The modulation spectrum stands out 
for its high spectral purity. Sidebands 
are well below permissible levels at the 
frequency spacing relevant for adjacent- 
channel measurements. Filters other 
than the standard ones may be used for 
varying the modulation spectrum (for 
CMS network: filters with BxT = 0.2, 

0.3, 0.5). With GFSK modulation for 
DECT, non-standard deviations may be 
set to allow in-depth receiver tests. 



The data signals for modulation are 
applied externally or supplied by the 
internal data generator. Bit rates are 
selectable with FSK; they are network- 
specific for other types of modulation.

EMI/RFI Solutions - An Introduction 

Electrical and electronic devices may emit signals 'which interfere with other 
devices, or even with themselves. These signals are known as electromagnetic inter- 
ference (EMI) or sometimes as radio frequency interference (RFI). Conversely, the 
ability of a device to withstand emissions from other devices or from itself is called 
immunity. The inverse of immunity is electromagnetic susceptibility (EMS). 

As the number of electronic devices in use increases, so does the potential for these 
devices to interfere with each other. Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is a meas- 
ure of how well they share their electromagnetic environment without adverse 
affects from EMI. 

The goal of EMC is to construct electrical equipment with sufficiently low emis- 
sions and sufficiently high immunity to guarantee electromagnetic compatibility. 

The definition and enforcement of “sufficiently high” and “sufficiently low” 
becomes a matter of standards and regulations. In fact, when we refer to EMC com- 
pliance, we generally mean the ability of a system or device to meet standards regu- 
lating the amount of EMI that it can emit and its immunity to EMI. 

EMC/EMI is a vital concern to manufacturers of electrical equipment subject to 
compliance. Their products must meet the applicable standards before they can be 
marketed. To ensure electromagnetic compatibility, the necessary measures should, 
therefore, be considered as early in the design phase as possible so they can be 
implemented in product development. 

EMI 

Electromagnetic interference or emissions from an electrical or electronic device 
may significantly impair radio and TV reception in the vicinity. While this is clear- 
ly an annoyance, an even greater concern is interference to navigation and commu- 
nications equipment on board aircraft. 

To prevent such a critical situation and to allow a wide variety of devices to operate 
next to and with each other, it’s important to define interference limits ensuring a 
sufficient safety margin between EMI emissions and EMS limit values. Depending 
upon the standard being applied and the limit class required, different test condi- 
tions have to be observed in interference measurements. Test measurements are 
made either in shielded rooms or at an open-area test site as required. It is impor- 
tant that the measuring instruments themselves should not influence the result. 

EMS 

EMS measurements are made to test the function of a module, instrument, or sys- 
tem under the influence of conducted or radiated interference. These measurements 
must be carried out in shielded rooms or anechoic chambers. RF absorbers in the 
test chamber prevent erroneous results and simulate open-site conditions at high 
frequencies. 

FIELD- STRENGTH AND RADIO MONITORING MEASUREMENTS 

Radiocommunications services (PTT, broadcasting corporations, military, traffic and 
security authorities, as well as civil services) use field-strength meters for propaga- 
tion measurements in the planning stage and for coverage measurements during 
operation of communication networks. 

Field-strength measurements - in particular, propagation and coverage measiue- 
ments - are usually made in mobile mode (vehicle or aircraft). Therefore, portabili- 
ty and DC or battery operation are important criteria in the choice of a test receiver. 

Radio monitoring services use test receivers to check emissions for compliance with 
the specifications. Test parameters include field-strength, wave propagation, spuri- 
ous responses, frequency, occupied bandwidth, frequency deviation, and amplitude 
modulation depth, as well as channel and band occupancy.

Final-certification EMI 
Measurements up to 40 GHz 

The ESI family of EMI test receivers combines 
the flexibility and speed of spectrum analyzers 
with the large dynamic range required for EMI 
measurements in conformance with standards. 



ROHDE&SCHWARZ 

Rohde & Schwarz' quality 
system complies with the DIN 
ISO 9001 standard and has 
been certified by DQS 
(German Association for the 
Certification of Quality 
Systems). 



The ESI family comprises three models with dif- 
ferent upper frequency limits: 

► ESI7: 20 Hz to 7 GHz 

► ESI26: 20 Hz to 26.5 GHz 

► ESI40: 20 Hz to 40 GHz 

All three models are characterized by: 

► High sensitivity 

► Excellent large-signal immunity 

► Low measurement uncertainty 

► High measurement speed 



MEASUREMENTS TO STANDARD 

ESI carries out measurements in conformance with 
all industrial and military EMI standards such as 
CISPR, EN, VDE, ANSI, FCC, BS, ETS, VCCI, MIL- 
STD, VG, DEF-STAN, DO160 and GAM EG13. The 
ESI family complies with the basic standard, i.e. 
CISPR16-1 or VDE0876, which places stringent 
requirements on receiver d}mamic range. 

TEST ROUTINES ORIENTED TO PRAaiCAL 
REQUIREMENTS 

During the various development phases of a 
product, different measurements are performed 
as required for each stage. The ESI family offers 
appropriate featrues and routines for the differ- 
ent development stages.

EMI Test Receivers 

NEW ESI 



The ESI is outstanding for its low inher- 
ent noise, high intermodulation sup- 
pression and low SSB phase noise. 
Modulation analysis of analog or digital 
signals is possible with the optional 
Vector Signal Analyzer FSE-B7. 
Moreover, ESI provides all test routines 
offered hy modern spectrum analyzers, 
such as noise measurement, phase 
noise measurement, channel and adja- 
cent-channel power measurement and 
time-domain measurement, as known 
from the FSE family. 

DEFINITION OF STANDARD TEST 
SEQUENCES 

To meet the requirements of relevant 
standards, measurements over various 
frequency ranges and bandwidtlis have 
to be performed, using different step 
sizes and measurement times or different 
receiver settings characteristics. For this 
purpose, ESI offers a user-configurable 
scan table with up to 10 subranges. 

EMI emissions are usually measured in 
two steps. An overview measurement 
made with the peak detector identifies 
critical emissions above or close to 
limit values. In a second measurement 
with the prescribed detectors (quasi- 
peak and average, in compliance with 
CISPR) and an appropriate measure- 
ment time, the critical frequencies are 
checked for compliance with limit val- 
ues. The ESI family supports this proce- 
dure by two independent measurement 
windows on the screen. 

SPLIT-SCREEN DISPLAY 

Critical emissions can be measured 
with numerical display of frequency 
and level as with classic receivers. Bar 
graphs provide an analog display of 
measured values for the various detec- 
tors simultaneously and in different 
colors. By coupling the marker in the 
overview spectrum to the receiver fre- 
quency, emissions can be measured fast 
and reliably in line with standards. In 
the second window, the operator can 
zoom in on the displayed trace. 

ESI can store up to 70,000 measured val- 
ues per trace in background operation. 
This considerably reduces measurement 
time, since no new measurement is need- 
ed to make a detailed analysis. 



LISTEN, VIEW, MEASURE 

To analyze the spectrum and to exclude 
ambient noise, tune the receiver fre- 
quency to the marker frequency, and 
activate the built-in AM/FM demodula- 
tor by switching on the loudspeaker or 
headphones. 

DOCUMENTATION OF RESULTS 

Practically any type of printer can be 
used for the documentation of results. 
ESI runs under Windows NT, so all 
printers for which Windows drivers are 
available can be employed. 

Results can not only be output to a 
printer but also stored on a floppy disk 
or the internal hard disk in common 
Windows formats like EMF, WMF or 
BMP. The data can be integrated into 
commercial word processing programs 
for the generation of test reports. 

HIGH ACCURACY 

In the frequency range up to 1 GHz, ESI 
performs level measurements with an 
accuracy of ± 1 dB, clearly better than 
the value of 2 dB specified by CISPR16-1. 

SYSTEM INTEGRATION 

The fast data processing of ESI makes it 
an ideal choice for use in automatic 
measurement systems. The IEEE 488-2- 
bus command set (lEC 625-2) conforms 
to SCPI (1994.0). 

With a the IEEE 488-bus card (Opt. 
FSE-B17), the ESI can be used as a test 
system controller. This is possible 
because, with the operating system 
Windows NT, an integrated controller 
function is provided as standard which 
allows the use of a wide variety of 
Rohde&Schwarz software packages. 

This enables the implementation of 
complete measurement systems without 
the need for an additional controller, 
which saves space and cost.

The number of measurements required to ensure 
electromagnetic compatibility is continuously 
increasing. Thanks to the built-in intelligence of 
the ESHS/ESVS/ESS EMI Test Receivers, the 
time required for such measurements is reduced 
considerably. These test receivers are specialized 
for measurements to the applicable CISPR, CEN- 
ELEC, ETSI, FCC, VCCI and VDE standards. In 
addition, the ESS provides measurements to the 
relevant military standards as well ~ MIL, VG, 
DEF and STAN. 

The ESHS/ESVS/ESS featme high frequency res- 
olution and accurate level indication in peak 
average and quasi-peak detection (ESS provides 
RMS also). The real strength, however, is the 
automatic measurement of RFI voltage, current, 
power and field strength. After a fast pre-scan 
measurement, it compares the results with pre- 
scribed limits, displays the interference spectrum 
with the limits on the screen, and furnishes a 
comprehensive test report with all the necessary 
information. The time-consuming quasi-peak 
measurement is only carried out in cases where 
the peak value is close to the relevant limit. 

EMI TEST RECEIVER FEATURES 

The ESHS 10. ESHS 30, ESVS 10, ESVS 30 and 
ESS share the same basic design and perform- 
ance characteristics. The various models provide 
differing features which provide full EMI meas- 
urement performance from 5 Hz to 1 GHz. All 
models feature an excellent price/performance 



ratio, compact design, high measurement speed, 
and great operating convenience. Following are 
the primary features, shared by all instruments 
unless noted otherwise: 

RF SECTION 

► High pulse loading capacity of calibrated 
attenuator 

► Comprehensive preselection filters 

► Switchable preamplifier with wide 
dynamic range 

► Crystal-stabilized, fast synthesizer with high 
resolution and sweep 

DEMODULATION 

► Parallel detectors for average, peak and 
quasi-peak indication (ESS also provides 
RMS indication) 

► AM and AO demodulators (ESVS and ESS 
also provide FM demodulation) 

► Logarithmic amplifier with more than 70 dB 
dynamic range 

► Automatic overload detection in the mixer 
stages and in the test channel by permanently 
activated peak detectors 

POWERFUL PROCESSOR SYSTEM 

► Macros for automatic and semi-automatic 
test runs 

► 12-Bit A/D converter with short conversion 
time

SIMPLE OPERATION 

A combination of hardkeys and softkeys 
ensures simple operation and fast access 
to the menu functions. All models have 
the classic test receiver controls on the 
right of the front panel for manual set- 
tings. The left section of the front panel 
is used to edit data for automatic test 
runs, tables for limit values and trans- 
ducer factors (for example, for current 
and voltage probes and antennas), as 
well as special functions and the infor- 
mation required for test reports.

Introduction 

The ESVB/ESVD/ESVN/ESN Test Receivers are 
ideal instruments for all applications in the 
fields of radio monitoring and radio network 
planning, civil RFI measurements to all relevant 
standards, as well as for selective voltage and 
two-port measurements in manual and automatic 
mode. ESVB/ESVD/ESVN/ESN are used to meas- 
ure and demodulate both amplitude-modulated 
(DSB, SSB pulse) and frequency-modulated sig- 
nals, as well as narrowband and broadband 
interference in the range from 20 MHz to 1 GHz 
(ESVN), 9 kHz to 2.05 GHz (ESN), and 20 MHz 
to 2.05 GHz (ESVB/ESVD Opt. 02). 

Manual operation or automatic mode, with spec- 
trum display on screen and reports of results on 
printer or plotter, make these Test Receivers 
extremely versatile for many applications. 



TEST RECEIVER FEATURES 

The ESVB/ESVD/ESVN/ESN Test Receivers com- 
bine three different types of test receivers in one: 

► A compact, manually tuned and battery-oper- 
ated test receiver 

► A test receiver which automatically performs 
measurements and reports the results 

► A system-compatible test receiver

MANUAL MODE 

These test receivers perform measure- 
ments at a fixed frequency with the 
desired bandwidth, attenuation, meas- 
urement time and display mode. Level 
measurement, modulation, and devia- 
tion measurement, as well as frequency 
and frequency offset measurement, are 
carried out simultaneously. 

While measurements are being per- 
formed, the IF analysis function allows 
the spectrum about the receive frequen- 
cy to be analyzed. Measurement of 
level, modulation, or frequency, as well 
as signal assessment using the built-in 
loudspeaker, are made at the center fre- 
quency of the extended spectrum with 
the settings selected. 



AUTOMATIC MODE 

The receive frequency range is scanned 
and the result displayed as a spectrum 
on the screen. The measurement param- 
eters such as start frequency, stop fi:e- 
quency, IF bandwidth, measurement 
time, attenuation and display mode can 
be freely selected. 

THREE OPERATING MODES FOR 
FREQUENCY SCANNING 

Overview Mode; Frequency scanning 
over the desired frequency range is at 
maximum speed and with fixed attenu- 
ation. 

Scan Mode: Frequency scanning is 
quasi-continuous with selectable step 
size and measurement time as well as 
automatic attenuation setting. 

Channel Mode: Frequency scanning 
over a defined data set with up to 400 
frequencies. 

DOCUMENTATION OF RESULTS 

The results, along with all relevant 
information, can be output in graphical 
form or as lists on a plotter or printer. 

In addition, data can be stored on a 
floppy disk along with the complete 
receiver setup. 

USE IN COMPUTER-CONTROLLED 
SYSTEMS 

Full use of the high measurement rate 
of these test receivers is possible only 
in the remote mode using a high-speed 
controller. In the determination of field- 
strength profiles, the receivers furnish 
5,000 measured values per second after 
being triggered by a positioning system 
or a time base. 

For radio monitoring, up to 10,000 fre- 
quencies can be stored in the receivers 
and scanned at high speed with range- 
related receiver settings. The results are 
then output to the process controller.

Introduction 

The EMI Precertification Test Receiver ESPC has 
been derived from various Rohde&Schw^arz full- 
compliance receiver models and thus enables 
versatile applications in the field of EMI precom- 
pliance. It is a budget-priced solution for emis- 
sion tests of all stages of development and pro- 
duction of electrical products. 

Featuring built-in preselection, ESPC is able to 
perform accurate interference measurements 
with pulse repetition frequencies (PRF) to as low 
as 10 Hz in accordance with CISPR 16-1. An 
overload detection system for the complete 
receiver signal path, from the input through to 
the IF stages, warns the user of erroneous meas- 
urements. 



SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE ESPC 

► Frequency range from 150 kHz to 1000 MHz 

► Options for frequency extension to 9 kHz and 
2500 MHz 

► Parallel detectors for average, peak and quasi- 
peak reading 

► Fast synthesizer: Frequency resolution 10 and 
100 Hz 

POWERFUL PROCESSOR SYSTEM 

► Macros for automatic and semi-automatic test 
routines 

► Automatic level calibration 

► Measurement of voltage, field strength, cur- 
rent and pulse spectral density with display 
of relevant units

EMI Test Receiver ESPC 

EMC-COMPATIBLE DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUaiON 



COMPLETE TESTS AT A KEYSTROKE 

The test receiver automatically selects 
the correct CISPR bandwidths for the 
relevant test frequency. In conjunction 
with firmware macros for automatic test 
routines, comparisons with limit lines, 
for instance to EN standards, can con- 
veniently be made. 

Up to 22 different: 

► Limit lines 

► Transducer factors 

can be stored in a built-in nonvolatile 
memory, ensuring high accuracy for 
every frequency step. 

Users not specialized in EMI can also 
easily handle and carry out these repro- 
ducible test runs. The ESPC shows its 
true strength by making the following 
measurements at the press of a button: 

► RFI Voltage 

► RFI Power 

► RFI Field Strength 

SOFTWARE-SUPPORTED EMI MEAS- 
UREMENTS 

The Windows Software ESPC-Kl sup- 
plied with the ESPC supports EMI 
measurements in accordance with com- 
mercial standards.

Tektronix measurement 
products are manufactured in 
ISO registered facilities. 



The time to address compliance is before it 
becomes a problem. Proper attention to EMC, 
from the design stage through pre-certification 
testing, can reduce your product development 
cost and decrease your time to market. 

Achieve these objectives and more with the 
Tektronix 271 2 OB EMI Measurement System - a 
complete solution for EMI pre- and post-certifi- 
cation of your products. The heart of the system 
is the easy-to-use 2712 Option 12 Spectrum 
Analyzer. It includes many features helpful in 
identifying and measuring EMC signals: 

► Internal preamp 

► Frequency counter 

► AM/FM demodulator 

► True analog display 

► 4-trace digital display 

► Peak. Quasi-peak and Average detection 

► 200 Hz, 9 kHz, 120 kHz EMC filters 



Overload capability is enhanced and ambient 
signal interference is minimized by the 2706 
Stepping RF Preselector (Opt. 17). This may be 
controlled manually or automatically, via IEEE 
488 interface, by the EMC120 software. 

For diagnostic work, the 27120B provides a set 
of two E-field probes, three H-field probes and 
an extender. These allow you to quickly locate 
the source and frequency of radiation. 

Conducted emissions measurements are made 
with Option 16, which includes a 25 Amp LISN 
(Line Impedance Stabilization Network) and a 
Transient Limiter. Radiated emissions measure- 
ments are made with Option 11, which includes 
a biconical antenna and log-periodic antenna. A 
tripod and 10 m low-loss cable are also provided. 

The new EMC120 Windows-based software is a 
feature-filled package that takes the drudgery out 
of EMC testing. It does everything from data 
acquisition, to correcting for transducer factors, 
to graphing and printing final test results.

NEW 27120B EMC120 




Figure 1. The EMC120 Test Setup Screen. 



EMCi20 - Windows-based 
EMI Software for the 271206 

The EMC120 package is optimized for 
the Tektronix 2712 Option 12 Spectrum 
Analyzer, but it also runs with a stan- 
dard 2712. or a 2711. The EMC120 
automatically controls the Tektronix 
2706 Preselector by switching to the 
appropriate 2706 filter setting as the 
test is being run. 

FILE OPERATIONS 

A library of typical test routines, with 
commonly used limit lines, is provided 
with the software. These support com- 
mercial testing according to standards 
such as CISPR 11, CISPR 22. FCC Part 
15 (Class A and B) and the European 
Norms standards. 

TEST SETUP 

The Test Setup screen (see Figure 1) 
was designed so that commonly used 
spectrum analyzer test parameters are 
readily accessible. These include items 
such as the Start/Stop Frequency, 
Reference Level, Resolution Bandwidth 



and Sweep Speed. A frequency-band 
table allows precise control over each 
acquisition window on the 2712. 

RUNNING THE TEST 

Three detector modes are available 
when using a 2712 Option 12: Peak, 
Quasi-peak, and Average (the Average 
detector is simulated via the 2712 video 
filter). During Peak testing, data may be 
accumulated in Maxhold mode over a 
specified number of sweeps, or the data 
may be accumulated continuously until 
terminated by the user. 

VIEWING THE DATA 

As a test is being run, data is graphed 
as it is acquired. Once a test has com- 
pleted, it’s possible to enable one or 
two markers which provide absolute or 
relative frequency/amplitude values. 

If a Quasi-peak or Average test is being 
run, the graph is drawn and a window 
with Suspect Signals pops up on 
screen. You can then run a test on each 
of these signals, or edit the list (add or 
delete signals) prior to executing the QP 
or Average test. 

REPORT GENERATION 

EMC120 Software has a very versatile 
report generator. Each of the columns in 
the tabular report is user definable and 
can include elements such as the fre- 
quency of the signal, the peak ampli- 
tude, the limit line, etc. 

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS 

EMC120 Software runs on a PC-compat- 
ible computer equipped with a National 
Instruments GPIB (IEEE 488.2) card. A 
486/33 or faster processor with at least 




Figure 2. Graph of EMC120 data.

2706 Preselector 

The 2706 Stepping RF Preselector facilitates dis- 
tortion-free measurements in the presence of 
large signals at the spectrum analyzer input. If 
total signal power at the first mixer stage of the 
spectrum analyzer exceeds the 1 dB compression 
point, inaccurate amplitude measurements and 
spurious intermodulation products can result. 
The 2706 Preselector enables the spectrum ana- 
lyzer user to make accurate measurements over a 
wider range of signal environments by: 



► Significantly attenuating undesired out-of- 
band signals 

► Reducing energy from high amplitude, short 
duration pulses 

► Minimizing the total number of individual 
signals present at the analyzer input 

Use of commercial RF preselectors has been lim- 
ited because of high costs. Now Tektronix offers 
an affordable and cost-effective solution for pre- 
certification testing.

EMC Ancillary Devices 



EMC ANCILLARY DEVICES 

► Active Loop Antenna 

► Adjustable-length Dipoles 

► Biconical Antenna 

► Log-periodic Antenna 

► RF Near-field Probe Set 

► LISN 

► Transient Limiter 

► 10 m Low-loss Coaxial Cable 

► Adjustable Tripod 

Sensors or transducers are required for 
EMI signal reception. The sensor picks 
up the EMI signal and couples it to the 
spectrum analyzer. The spectrum ana- 
lyzer then displays the EMI signal as a 
plot of amplitude (vertically) versus fre- 
quency (horizontally). 




The type of sensor needed depends on 
the test standard and the nature of the 
test (radiated or conducted electric field, 
or radiated magnetic field). For radiated 
electric (E) field tests, a biconical, log 
periodic, or dipole antenna may be used. 
Electrostatically shielded loop antennas 
are used for magnetic (H) field tests. 

The specific transducer type required 
also depends on the test standard and 
frequency range. Tektronix has avail- 
able a line of antennas and other sen- 
sors, as shown in the figure at left. 

For conducted measurement, Tektronix 
offers a Line Impedance Stabilization 
Network (LISN). It is inserted between 
the AC power source and the EUT. 
Outputs on the LISN couple the EMI 
emitted by the EUT to the spectrum 
analyzer’s input. 

Our complete line of ancillary devices is 
listed in the ordering information below.

SIGNALING 

Radio test sets, covering major national and international standards, including 
CDMA, GSM, DCS 1800, PCS 1900 and AMPS are described here. 

In addition to the conventional RF and AF measuring facilities, many units also 
include special signaling capabilities. Testers with signaling simulate the base sta- 
tion and perform all signaling measurements to PTT regulations, in addition to all 
conventional radio measurements. For large cellular-radio networks, they also pro- 
vide base-station testing, including signaling. 

Integration of a signaling unit into the radio tester ensures fast data exchange 
between the control units, thus creating the prerequisites for real-time measure- 
ments under practical conditions. 

If in-depth spectral analysis is required, including modulation without signaling, 
refer to the Spectrum Analyzers section. In particular, see information on the 
FSEA Series, R3465, R3463, and R3263.

MEASURING QUALITY FROM THE 
SUBSCRIBER'S POINT OF VIEW 

Nearly 200 cellular operators worldwide com- 
pete everyday to provide the best quality and, 
at the same time, increase their market penetra- 
tion - as new ones are arriving. After the first 
battle of price rates, they have now understood 
that quality is the key to success: not only 
voice quality, but quality in all services which 
can be provided. 

The M366plus System now provides objective 
measures of Quality even more accurately - not 
only voice quality - everywhere, all the time. 

OPTIMIZING THE "MOBILE" NETWORK 

A cellular network is a “mobile” network not 
only because of the mobility of their customers, 
but also because it is never stationary like a 
fixed one is: new BTSs are deployed, frequency 
plans vary, in other words the network is always 
being optimized. 

The M366plus System is the best companion for 
this job. 

By collecting protocol information and significant 
events, and by means of its powerful post-analy- 
sis tools, the M366plus identifies critical zones 
and highlights the reasons for the problems. 



QOS: NOT ONLY VOICE, BUT ALSO DATA, FAX 
AND SMS 

With the M366plus System it is possible to 
objectively measure not only the quality of voice 
service, but also of SMS, data and fax transmis- 
sion over a cellular network. 

QOS: THE ULTIMATE APPROACH 

Although “Quality is not a matter of opinion,” 
each of us has a different ear and method of 
judgment. This is why one feels more comfort- 
able when he or she can personally listen on the 
receiving end of the communication channel and 
scribble down his or her own MOS. But in the 
M366plus System we have gone one step further: 
we have put together two methods in a single 
system, so that the accuracy, the simplicity and 
the unquestionable precision of our experienced 
technology, based on tbe measurement of impair- 
ment factors (clipping, impulsive noise, psopho- 
metric noise, loudness rating and echo), can be 
combined with the immediateness and confi- 
dence that arises from the automated measure- 
ments of real speech samples. 

The M366PLUS System 

The M366plus System has different components: 
each of them is flexible, configurable and powerful.

NEW M366PLUS 



THE BASE STATION 

The M366plus Base Station is the 
fixed node of the M366plus System. It 
is configurable with up to 4 interfaces 
and DSP measurement boards, emu- 
lating SPSTN-interfaces, provided 
with a local PC controller, and it per- 
forms all the operations required from 
its side: originating and receiving 
voice, data and fax calls, measuring 
Quality, storing data. 

THE MOBILE STATION 

The new generation of M366plus 
Mobile Station boasts a remarkably 
increased capacity of up to 4 test 
phones in any combination of GSM 
900, 1800, dual band and PCS 1900. 

Also provided with the local PC, the 
Mobile Station also features all the new 
powerful quality measurements and 
protocol analysis capabilities. 

THE POST PROCESSING SYSTEM 

In some cases, the M366plus 
Measurement Units can collect huge 
amounts of data and information. In 




order to quickly and effectively focus 
the data of interest, Tektronix offers a 
powerful tool of analysis: M366 REPORT. 

M366PLUS REPORT 

REPORT is the software tool used for 
storing, organizing and analyzing the 
information collected by the measure- 
ment units. 

REPORT can give the user all the 
required views on single or multiple 
sessions compare networks, to filter the 
data in any combination, and to gener- 
ate all sorts of REPORTS, of course, also 
in graphical form. 




The level of detail can be as specific as 
a single event occurring during one of 
the calls. 

This information is fully exploited by 
M366plus REPORT, which, utilizing 
MAPINFO-based software, allows view- 
ing of measurement information on dig- 
ital geographic maps. 

The M366plus System offers two archi- 
tectures for the post-processing envi- 
ronment, which both support the same 
REPORT application. 

► Standalone based on MS-ACCESS 

► Client-server based on ORACLE

Test of GSM Network Components 

Controlled traffic is one of the most recognized 
ways to test the operation of telecommunication 
systems. 

Tests are accomplished by emulating real users 
of the services, in all GSM variants (GSM900, 
DCS1800, PCS1900 and Dual Band ER/EFR). 



Use of MCGS 

With tlie MCGS, GSM network equipment (BTS, 
BSC, MSC) can be stimulated and tested by 
means of special call patterns which can be 
defined according to the specific testing needs. 

IN THE TEST PLANT 

The MCGS is particularly useful where several 
pieces of equipment are being integrated and 
tested before being put into service. 

By using the MCGS. you can: 

► Trace and analyze the correct execution of 
any single GSM procedure 

► Check the performance of the network in 
stress conditions 

► Find out the reason of the faults 



IN THE OPERATION PHASE 

The MCGS is very useful for discovering faults 
which remained inside the software even after the 
in-house testing or which are due to specific situ- 
ations that cannot be reproduced in a Test Plant. 

It is also useful to verify quickly and effectively 
that everything is correctly working after net- 
work re-configuration or software upgrades. 

Product Description 

The automatic and controlled traffic generation 
at the GSM air interface (Um) is the main func- 
tion of the MCGS. 

MOC and MTC (Mobile Originated and Mobile 
Terminated Calls) are generated in order to emu- 
late any kind of traffic scenario according to the 
schedules and patterns defined by the user. 

The call progression is monitored for each test 
call. 

Speech continuity checks and speech quality 
measurements (on the Traffic Channel) are made 
on the speech calls. 

The GSM layer 2, 3 messages can be traced.

Mobile Call Generation System 

NEW MCGS 




The users’ mobility is emulated by forc- 
ing lock and handovers. 

GSM Service Emulation 

All the services commonly used by 
the GSM customers can be emulated, 
for example: 

► Standard speech calls 

► Data calls, SMS 

► Phase 2 supplementary services 
(call forv^arding, call hold, 3-party 
calls, etc.) 

Analysis of test results 

The ability to quickly focus on the data 
of interest is one of the most important 
features of a traffic generator and the 




MCGS provides an analysis tool specifi- 
cally designed to quickly focus on 
important data. 

Powerful filtering utilities, summary 
and detailed reporting, fast navigation 
in the “ocean of data” are available. 

The MCGS features strong capabilities 
in the area of fault analysis. More than 
200 fault causes are recognized auto- 
matically and reported by the MCGS in 
several effective ways. 



Flexible Traffic Scenario 
Configuration 

You can take advantage of a graphical 
editor to define any single step and tim- 
ing of any test call. Any possible 
sequence of keystroke selection by a 
GSM customer can be reproduced. 

Traffic scenarios are easily configured 
by grouping different kinds of user- 
defined test calls and by associating 
them to the MCGS telephone interfaces. 

System Architecture 

The MCGS is a modular, open and dis- 
tributed system, based on a Windows 
NT Workstation connected, by means of 
an Ethernet LAN, to a user-definable 
number of Test Control Boards that can 
be hosted both in rack-mounted and in 
transportable platforms. 

The Test Control Boards interface the 
Control Unit and the GSM test or stan- 
dard mobiles that actually access the 
GSM network.

CMD 80 Digital Radio 
Communication Tester 

The CMD80 is a multi-protocol mobile handset 
tester that is optimized for manufacturing test 
environments, attacking those areas that are 
most significant to a handset manufacturer; min- 
imized capital expenditure, maximized 
speed/throughput and reduced test design time. 

To reduce capital expenditure, the CMD80 
allows the handset manufacturer to create uni- 
versal test lines. The CMD80 supports all of the 
following network types without the use of 
external modules: 

► CDMA 

► IS-136 (NEW) 

► AMPS 

► NAMPS 

► ETACS 

► NTACS 

► JTACS 

By creating universal test lines, the handset 
manufacturer reduces the amount spent on 
spares, training, manufacturing space and labor. 

The CMD80 provides maximum speed and 
throughput for the handset manufacturer. In 
benchmarks and in field trials, the CMD80 has 
been demonstrated to be as much as 20% faster 
than major competitors. This allows the manu- 



facturer to produce more phones per dollar of 
labor and capital expense. 

The CMD80 also uses the concept of test “envi- 
ronments” that allow the CMD80 to execute tests 
using l/6th of the code required for most testers. 

These environments allow the test programmer 
to define standard test parameter defaults that 
are used until they are redefined. 

By using the environment technique, the test pro- 
grammer is not required to repeatedly reissue a 
laundry list of setup commands each time a test 
needs to be executed. This reduces the amount of 
test time overhead, the time required to construct 
test programs, and the effort required to debug 
and support test programs. All of this adds up to 
more reliable testing for less investment. 

The CMD80 Digital Radio Communication Tester 
is a compact tester for CDMA, AMPS, TDMA 
and other mobiles. The mobile RF parameters 
are verified under similar conditions as found in 
a real network; i.e., the tester simulates a base 
station, makes a call to the mobile, and performs 
the measurements without any special test 
modes in the device-under-test. In the CDMA 
mode the CMD80 measures several key IS 95 
parameters using IS 98 methods: 

► FER service option 2 

► Frame errors 

► Waveform quality p

► Error vector magnitude 

► Phase error 

► Magnitude error 

► Carrier feedthrough 

► Frequency accuracy 

► Power measiuements 

► Base station signaling for mobile 
testing 

SIMULATION OF A BASE STATION 

The CDM 80 simulates a base station 
and provides all the signaling necessary 
to hold up a call: 

► Synchronization of mobile 

► Registration of mobile 

► Incoming/outgoing calls 

► Handoffs 

During the call, the tester verifies the RF 
performance and checks the correct 
operation of the basic signaling features. 

The CMD 80 does not rely on any spe- 
cial test modes in the mobile station 
and performs the measurements under 
conditions almost identical to those in 
the real network. A voice loop-back 
allows quick verification of mobile per- 
formance as it is perceived by tlie user. 

EASY TO USE 

The CMD 80 is extremely user friendly 
and requires little detailed network 
knowledge. The large high-contrast liq- 
uid crystal display provides softkeys on 
both sides to allow convenient call-up 
of test routines under menu control. 

Easily, the user can switch to a menu 
and change the current settings of sig- 
naling and measurement parameters. 
The user is guided through the menus 
by explanatory text and may always 
return to the default setting with a push 
of a button. 

FAST MEASUREMENTS 

State-of-the-art digital technology leads 
to quick and efficient measurements for 
rho and power. In remote control mode 
via IEEE bus, the instrument is excep- 
tionally fast and yields high throughput 
in production. 



TEST CAPABILITIES 

All essential characteristics of a mobile 
station can be tested with high accura- 
cy. The CMD 80 not only verifies the RF 
performance of a mobile but, in addi- 
tion, checks software features of the 
mobile which are important for the cor- 
rect operation of the network. In many 
cases, this avoids the need for expen- 
sive custom test beds in development 
and QA. 

HIGH FLEXIBILITY 

Almost every signaling and measure- 
ment parameter can be modified by the 
user in the configuration menus, either 
dynamically during a test or in advance. 
Even the tolerances for pass/fail verdicts 
can be changed to match the require- 
ments of the application. 

DC MEASUREMENTS 

The DC ammeter/voltmeter designed for 
pulsed signals allows correct measure- 
ment of the power consumption of the 
mobile station.

Communications Test Sets 

CRTC02 



All layer 1 channel coding, as well as 
layer 2 signaling, is automatically per- 
formed in real time. The layer 3 signal- 
ing sequence is defined by special test 
programs. 

PROTOCOL ANALYSIS 

Every transmitted or received layer 2 or 
layer 3 message, or even the bits of a 
burst, are marked with a frame number 
and recorded in the log memory. 
Depending upon whether everything is 
logged or just selected logical channels, 
the log can cover a inter\^al between ten 
seconds and 15 minutes. The logged 
messages are displayed in mnemonic 
form on the screen, using the same 
basic mask as the message editor. 

BURST ANALYSIS 

After data have been logged, power 
ramping as well as phase and frequency 
errors are calculated and displayed as a 
whole. Detailed analysis is supported 
by the zoom function. 

To check the timing-advance measure- 
ment function of a mobile station, the 
CRTC02 measures the arrival of the 
burst and monitors the response of the 
mobile station to timing advance com- 
mands in the generator channels. 

To permit synchronization of external 
measuring instruments, a spectrum ana- 
lyzer for example, the CRTC has a trigger 
output for automatically starting meas- 
urement at the beginning of a burst. 

TESTING RECEIVER SENSITIVITY 

In the loop-back mode, bit error rates 
(BER) can be measured in real to test the 
receiver sensitivity of a mobile station. 

The same test can be made on base sta- 
tions by applying a .signal modulated 
with a CCITT test pattern to the 
receiver input. 

ACOUSTIC TESTS 

These tests are supported by the built- 
in speech coder function and the 
Digital Audio Interface (DAI) of the 
mobile .station as defined in 
Recommendation 11.10.III.6.4. 

A serial EMMI is provided for remote 
control of the mobile station. 

AF MEASUREMENTS (OPTION 01) 

A wide range of audio measurements 
can be performed on the AF section of 



the station-under-test. The AF generator 
provides single or double tones. The 
following measurement functions are 
implemented: 

► AF voltmeter with RMS or peak 
weighting 

► Continuously tunable distortion and 
SINAD meter 

► AF frequency counter 

► DC ammeter/ voltmeter

MANUAL OPERATION PHILOSOPHY 

Research and development engineers have found 
the CMD’s large clear LC display and user inter- 
face with logically structured menus unsur- 
passed when measuring RF parameters. This is 
true both in the manual test mode and in the 
flexible module test with system-specific signal 
generator and burst analyzer. During call setup 
the network and system-specific signaling 
parameters allow the R&D engineers to control 



the influence of signaling parameters on the 
mobil’s behavior in the network. 

USER-DEFINABLE AUTOTEST 

The user-friendly display and operation of the 
CMD is a main requirement when testing manu- 
ally, but for automated testing, the engineer 
wants a quick and easy way to a ready-made 
autotest or he has to create his own test script 
for the specific task to be performed. The CMD 
family of testers offers different ways of creating 
such autotests and test scripts, depending on the 
CMD model and the test requirements. 

FAST lEEE-BUS 

In a production line there are two main factors 
that contribute to high throughput and product 
quality: lEC/IEEE-bus speed and measurement 
repeatability. 

The CMD offers the fastest lEEE-bus operation 
available. With combined measurements and 
measurements like RF peak power which takes 
only milliseconds, time-consuming power level 
adjustments where multiple measurements are 
required are completed in seconds. The level of 
measurement repeatability offered ensures the 
highest possible quality of the end product leav- 
ing the factory.

COVERING ANY NEED FOR 
TEST MODES 

Service and repair of digital mobiles 
and cordless phones call for a variety of 
tests, ranging from simple go/nogo tests 
to complete factory-like production 
tests and calibration of the phone. The 
CMD range offers cost-effective solu- 
tions for manual testing, stand-alone 
autotest, as well as remote RS232 oper- 
ation solutions covering any need for 

Tailored to Your Application 



testing. Every CMD comes, of course, 
with the same large display and user 
interface for manual test of phones 
and/or modules and RS232 interface for 
remote operation. 

BASE STATION SURVEY 
MEASUREMENTS 

These are often done on real base sta- 
tions or by using analog signal genera- 
tors with power amplifiers. The CMD is 



able to simulate any GSM base station 
BCCH, including parameters like MCC, 
MNC, NCC, BA list, DTX and DRX 
information. These and the “cell barred” 
feature enable close-to-life conditions 
without having to use a real BTS.

CMD 57 Digital 
Radiocommunication Tester 

The CMD 57 Digital Radiocommunication Tester 
is a compact unit for testing GSM, DCS 1800 and 
PCS 1900 base stations (BTS) and BTS modules. 
It allows measurements on base station transmit- 
ters and receivers without affecting calls in 
progress. With the in-service test option, meas- 
urements can be made without taking a cell site 
out of service. 

DETAILED KNOWLEDGE NOT REQUIRED 

The CMD 57 is easy to use and is equally at 
home in production, installation and service 
environments. Ease of use goes beyond the front 
panel. All parameters can be individually modi- 
fied in the configmation menu to allow easy 
adaptation to stringent user-specific tolerances. 
Any parameters that have modified with respect 
to the default standard specifications are clearly 
shown on the display. 

Additional attenuators, cables, and amplifiers are 
often required for connecting to the BTS. The 
effect of these additions are taken into account 
by the CMD 57 when calculating the measure- 
ment results. 



TEST YOUR TRANSMITTER 

The following GSM/DCS/PCS specific measure- 
ments are available for transmitter testing: 

► Mean RF carrier power 

► Power ramping 

► Phase/frequency error 

► Spectrum due to modulation 

► Spectrum due to switching 
Measurements results on the transmitter’s traffic 
channel (TGH) are obtained by simply switching 
to the corresponding menu. The results are 
graphically displayed along with applicable sta- 
tistical functions. 

... AND RECEIVERS TOO 

You can also make the required tests on 
receivers. 

► Bit error rate (BER) 

► Adjacent time slot rejection 

PLUS MANY OTHER MEASUREMENTS 

You can also make may other base station meas- 
urements with the GMD 57 including: 

► Echo test
